today I’m sharing the first peek at a kind of music I’ve been imagining since I was 15. since that age I’ve been a using field recorder and a camera to spontaneously/arbitrarily capture pieces of my day and all the while I’ve been thinking about what that means.
6 years of places felt
homes and empty rooms
lots of things that I forgot
glimpses of minutes I held onto
for no particular reason
growing up / finding home
‘transistion spaces’ was released today during bandcamp’s revenue sharing efforts, and in a few months I’ll be popping back into this thread to share the full-length tape release which follows the same path but iterates deeper.
for about as long as I can remember I’ve sheltered some kind of unconveyable anxiety about the passage of time and one of the most calming things for me is creating records. whether it’s capturing the sound of a room I left behind, the weather on a particular day, temporary arrangements in my neighborhood, or fleeting gestures made by hand, creating a permanent imprint via art brings me a lot of stability.
I thought of the title ‘transistion spaces’ when I was in my last year of high school & thinking about the temporary experience of home as I was moving away from my parents place in a small american midwestern town to a building in chicago. since then I’ve moved through temporary living arrangements in urban neighborhoods I hold dearly and now a similar sense of apprehension and optimism returns with the opportunity to graduate college and relocate to another city.
as a person who sees the world very differently I have a hard time finding home - these songs are about some of those attempts <3
(following @glia’s lead I’m gonna pop back in to this thread here and there between releases and process notes about how these songs and images were made)
