Animal Hospital

About

Animal Hospital is a project created by Kevin Micka. Three albums have been produced under this name since it’s birth in 2004. A live performance of Animal Hospital consists of Kevin alone and is based on the idea of building a piece of music up from scratch into a completely fleshed out arrangement often containing enough parts to employ many musicians. The music often references many familiar aspects of contemporary rock and pop music but is open to venture out into much more experimental territory. As of 2011, Kevin has begun exploring a new avenue for live performance by translating his music into a large ensemble format, sometimes topping 30 members.

  • Pitchfork Review of “Memory”

    March 26, 2009 : Pitchfork

    Boston’s Animal Hospital is a one-man band, with all the old-school connotations that term implies.

    Boston’s Animal Hospital is a one-man band, with all the old-school connotations that term implies. When I saw Kevin Micka play last summer in D.C., he was surrounded by a drum kit, guitars, and a table full of effects, multi-tasking on them not unlike a street-corner showman with a bass drum strapped to his back and a cymbal atop his head. But Micka’s music is no trick– patient and carefully detailed, his instrumentals rarely sound flashy or gimmicky. Often starting with a bare skeleton of a song, he adds skin and muscle until it becomes a full, dense soundscape, in a process that feels more like sculpture than songcraft. In fact, listening to Micka reminds me of watching Andy Goldsworthy build his nature-based art pieces in the excellent film about his work, Rivers and Tides.

    Tonally, Micka’s knack for organically combining electronics and acoustics, while always staying attentive to rhythm, puts his latest album, Memory, in the realm of artists like the Books, Tortoise, and some of the Kranky roster. On “A Safe Place”, Micka first puts small bits of percussion on top of each other like a bricklayer erecting a simple wall, then adds a light drone and layers of circular acoustic guitar. The way he uses those guitar figures– the kind that sound like sketches toward bigger, fuller song structures, but actually create more mysterious moods by staying abstract–  evokes some of Papa M’s instrumental meditations. But Micka’s own creative personality is clearly the core of Animal Hospital’s subdued, hypnotic atmospheres.

    Discussing his latest album, Boston native Kevin Micka, a.k.a. Animal Hospital, seems well aware of music’s uncanny ability to engage the imagination, to interact with the listener’s individual life experience and memory. Primarily, Micka hopes the listener will develop a personal connection to his songs and will “project their own meanings into the music.” While at first these goals may seem commonplace, even clichéd, they nonetheless hint at some of the more profound and complex ways in which we appreciate music in general. Indeed, there is something magical about how certain abstract elements, such as a combination of guitar tones and notes, can cause us to reflect upon specific and meaningful moments of our past.

    On Memory, Micka achieves his goals by utilizing an array of digital effects and loops to create largely instrumental guitar-based compositions. Considering the methods used here, comparisons can easily be made to prominent post-rock groups such as Mogwai and Tortoise, especially on the album’s more rhythmic tracks. At the same time, with its emphasis on expansive textures and swells, subtle melodies, and spacious production values, Memory fits alongside the work of more ambient-focused artists as well. While embracing these latter elements, Micka maintains a refreshingly simple and distinct quality with his guitar work. He proves that it’s still possible to create complex, layered soundscapes without making your six-string sounding like a synthesizer.

    Aside from some excellent cello work courtesy of Jonah Sacks, Micka is indeed responsible for all the instrumentation for Animal Hospital, both on record and in a live setting. In a field where the right combination of effects pedals has made this type of one-man showmanship possible, Micka separates himself through the relative complexity of his songs. On moments such as the dramatic build-up of chugging power chords on “His Belly Burst” or the choral washes and swells of “Memory,” the results are truly breathtaking.

    “…and ever” is another track that seems to be garnering a lot of attention and praise as of late. Undoubtedly, the song showcases Micka’s mastery over the loop pedal as an instrument in and of itself. His ability to accurately recreate the song live is actually quite astounding (a live video can be seen on the Barge Recordings website). However, with its blazing, fuzzed-out guitar riffs, driving rhythm section, and lyrical wails, the song is an anomaly compared to the rest of the album. Admittedly, such variation between songs is not necessarily a bad thing. However the track’s length and position certainly make it a focal point of the album and, as a result, the nature of the track makes it hard to walk away from Memory with a cohesive picture in mind.

    That being said, Memory is still full of heart-wrenching, beautiful moments that certainly cannot be discounted. In our current musical climate, where the phrase “post-rock” is enough to send many running for the hills, Animal Hospital proves how effective and powerful sprawling guitar-centered instrumentals can still be. And through the combination of its reflective and introspective qualities, the album evokes an emotional weight that demands attention.

  • Forming an Animal collective

    Animal Hospital began as a one-man band fronted by the modest and multi-talented Kevin Micka, but the project has since grown into an ensemble comprised of a small army of friends and local luminaries.

    When he began performing and recording solo, Micka’s music was created by looping live drums, guitars and specially mic’d toys into a homemade soundboard where sparse soundscapes culminated into heavy, intricate crescendos with multiple tracks coexisting in harmonious chaos.

    Last December, however, he took his project one step further, curating his greatest undertaking so far. Stepping away from his instruments and taking on the role of conductor, Micka handpicked 32 musicians and positioned them in a circle surrounding the sold-out MassArt audience to perform selections from the Animal Hospital catalogue.

    “Anywhere you were in the circle you would see something different and hear something different,” notes Micka. “It was really great going through the process of deconstructing and analyzing all the parts for everyone and then see what they did with them. Most of the parts I had very specific ideas about. Some others were a lot more open to improvise off of, which added a whole new life to it. I never really thought about conducting before, but I really enjoyed it. In some ways it made a lot of sense. My brain accepted it in a similar way to playing solo — a similar thought process of steps to follow and execute the arrangement.”

    A sound decision

    Micka is known around town as a sound engineer, a consistent hired gun for friends’ bands and the most recent member of Neptune. His ensemble is a testament to Mi-cka’s reputation as one of the city’s most important sonic architects and proof of a unified scene in our underrated city.

    “One of the benefits of living in Boston so long is that I’ve met and gotten to know a lot of these people from playing with them,” he says.

    Kevin Micka has long been Boston’s most modest, capable and prolific sonic architect. Those of us who have followed his work know he’s rarely one to hype up his own. Whether it be recording and mixing some of the city’s best rock records, building microphones, repairing instruments, touring with friends’ bands, or performing amazingly and intricately as his one-man-band, Animal Hospital, Micka has always been the city’s quiet genius. In short, he is the hope and fulfillment of all that is good in our underrated town.

    In early December, Micka transformed Animal Hospital from a one-man band to an epic rock orchestra. His magnum opus and greatest undertaking so far, Micka assembled a small army of friends and local luminaries to showcase his music on a grander scale. Stepping away from his instruments, Micka took on the role of conductor as 32 musicians assembled in a semi-circle at a sold-out MassArt auditorium to perform hand-picked selections from his Animal Hospital catalogue. Songs usually performed alone with loops of drums, guitars and homemade mic’d instruments, were fleshed out by 23 guitarists, seven string players and two drummers. The grandiose spectacle provided a testament to the vision of Kevin Micka, and his importance as an artist, in and beyond city limits. The following interview is an exclusive. Completed via email from his recent European tour, Micka was kind enough to answer the following questions.

    The surround sound you hear at a concert is ultimately technological trickery – the woofers in the back of a venue, the speakers hanging from the rafters. Sunday’s performance by Animal Hospital Ensemble at the Massachusetts College of Art, meanwhile, was authentically immersive. The crowd of over 200 filed into the Pozen Center, grabbed seats in the middle, and soon found themselves engulfed in a circle of two drummers, six string players and 22 guitarists.

    Kevin Micka (who performs as Animal Hospital) composes, produces, and performs his music alone, mining intense beauty from repeated patterns and heavy drones. In a live setting, he loops intricate moving parts to achieve the work of dozens. Except now Micka is expanding the band’s horizons, at least for two one-off performances. The Animal Hospital Ensemble (a group of over 30 musicians) will make its debut in Pawtucket tomorrow before arriving in Boston at the Pozen Center on Sunday.

Animal Hospital

Bio

Animal Hospital is Kevin Micka’s one-man musical recording/performance entity. Formed at the tail-end of Micka’s time with Boston band The Common Cold, Animal Hospital slowly began to take on a life of its own in 2004. A self-titled debut CD by Animal Hospital was released on Boston’s Mister Records that year and displayed Micka’s ability as a composer and engineer in communicating his creative expression. Since then, Kevin has consistently toured the United States, the U.K., and Europe throughout France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark and Iceland. Within the last 5 years Micka has continued writing and releasing several additional tracks on various compilations around the world. Animal Hospital has won followers from all corners of the music world, earning himself spots with bands as diverse as The Jesus Lizard, Beirut, No Age, Neptune, Thrones, Dosh and The Great Redneck Hope (not to mention a recurring role as bumper music on Boston’s NPR station). During performances, Micka buries himself in a pile of electronics-shelves of effects, mixing consoles, amps and delay units-while patiently constructing a layered nest of loops consisting of live drum beats, guitar chords, scrapes, chucks, chimes, and melodies resulting in anything from more conventional songs to meticulously crafted ambient movements on to full on improvisation. Long a hidden treasure in Boston recording circles as a freelance recording engineer (for diverse projects such as Neptune, Helms, and Harry and the Potters) and a trusted electronics fix-it man, Micka has approached Animal Hospital over the last four years in the nooks and crannies of his schedule. Over the past year and a half, Kevin has been able to devote more time than ever to writing and recording and it has yielded two new albums’ worth of music – a digital release in January 2009 from the Chicago label – Mutable Sound titled Good or Plenty, Streets and Avenues and a CD release in March 2009 from the New York/Boston label – Barge Recordings titled Memory. Both new albums were recorded in locations across the U.S. – starting in the bay area, on to an abandoned bank in Wellsburg, WV and concluding in various locations in the Boston Area and Cape Cod. All the material was then mixed at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket, RI and The Blast Zone in Roxbury, MA and mastered in South Boston at Old Colony. Each album moves at the knowing pace of an exploratory mind and settles comfortably into strange habitats with a sure-footed traveler.
