Cached Media:

"Dan Derks (New York) and Zander Raymond (Chicago) here represent a school of musical composers who use a set of tools (monome norns, modular synth) balancing delicacy and chance. Recorded together in rural New York, their improvisations were cataloged and compressed into Qualia. The album is charming and mysterious; wandering through a wooded hillside, one stumbles across a shelter made from branches left behind by dwellers who are now long gone; arranged with care, the shelter is both of purpose – to protect one from the elements – but also elegant, aesthetic, and enigmatic in its methodology and function. The craft present in these humble electronic murmurings provides them a haiku-like simplicity / profundity. Every notion feels integral, and every detail feels considered, but there is a transcendent lightness here that comes from two collaborators who fundamentally understand that sometimes less can be more, and often, the sweetest moments happen in a kind of tender grass-licked repo se.'
