  • Availability:

Label launched in NY in April 2021eë.editions is in stock for the first time in Japan.

This work is a 2-piece set cassette with loop processing in real time by The Concept House.Plenty of 100 minutes or more recorded. DL code included.

These sonic bits were all "performed" live --looped and layered in real time, constructing idiosyncratic rhythmic and timbral suites that emphasize spontaneity, while shifting tempo, texture and tone. All four volumes draw on a long-standing practice of record collecting, repeated listening and slow explorations of the uniqueness of physical pressings --ostensibly identical reproduced copies of the "same." The physicality of the individual records plays as central a role as the music recorded on them --picking up, dropping the needle, lag between loop stops , skips, bumps, hiss and surface smudge all shift from being unwanted excess to being core units of composition.

What began then as an exercise in constraints, as an attempt to break out of habitual modes of music making and listening expanded into a four-part work that established its own creative, repetitive habituations. of repetition ended up creating another --albeit productively.
