Raw recordings were loosely cut, reversed, played slowly, pitched down/up, chopped, effected, thrown out, picked up again, transformed. I’ve been working on and off on this for the last year or so. There’s no central theme, but i would say if there is a mood, it’s definitely that dislocated/wired feeling at the end of a busy day.
Tunes were built from modular + field recordings 2016-2018, mostly recorded late at night while everyone was asleep. Tracking and mixing done on headphones mostly, trusty hd-25s.
The cover art is an edit of an illustration from a recent edition of Stanislaw Lem’s amazing Cyberiad book, which I can’t find online for some reason. I bought it in an amazing bookshop in Krakow some years ago.
I am generally super inspired by everything that goes on on this site, so i guess this is like giving a little bit back? Thanks for the inspiration you lot
There is a very special recording back in the mix in this one.
We holidayed near Lake Garda last year, staying in a small tin can trailer. It rained very heavily one night with exceptional thunder and lightning. I got out my recorder and tried to capture everything as best I could: my sleeping partner breathing deeply beside me, the hum of the fridge, rain on the caravan, wind, night, humidity…
You can probably hear deep sleeping breaths if you listen hard enough.
