Ask Gotye about his new album Making Mirrors and he’ll speak not of songs, but of sounds. He’ll describe the various valves through which strings and choirs cycle on his Lowrey Cotillion, a vintage organ bought for $100.00 in a second-hand shop that featured on the record. He’ll also explain how he constructed a bassline by sampling the Winton Musical Fence, an unlikely instrument he discovered in the Queensland, Australia, comprised of five large metal strings attached to wooden fence posts and a resonant chamber.
Gotye (pronounced Gauthier) first found fame in his native Australia with his second album, 2006’s Like Drawing Blood. Its extraordinary follow-up, Making Mirrors was more than two and a half years in the making. To write and record its one dozen sumptuous songs, Gotye moved from Melbourne to a barn on his parents’ remote 5 hectare block on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. There, he had the space to permanently set up his growing array of instruments and recording equipment and found the isolation that allowed for sonic experimentation and recording at any time of the day.
