don’t post here as much, but wanted to post my latest album because the lines/norns community directly influenced and inspired most of the process of making it.
“cycle one” was created with cheat codes primarily processing clarinet and “vesper” was a tape loop thrown into compass.
a little snippet from the mission statement of the record:
Desolation Tape was created under the extremities of loneliness and desperation. It was recorded at PAM Residencies in Highland Park, Los Angeles. Principal recording was done between May 2nd, 2020 and May 6th, 2020, and was subsequently mixed and mastered until completion on May 11th, 2020. The record was mastered onto 1⁄2” tape by Rick Spataro in Albany, New York.
Sonically, it is an exploration in clarinet loops, nylon guitar, kulintang and granulized samples. The objective was to build aural landscapes for the listener to submerge themselves and get lost in.
All proceeds for the record (both physical and digital) are being donated to Philippine-based relief organizations during this time.
