Edition of 70.

Text by Hotham Sound Recordings:

Since migrating to Canada in 2008, Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Alexandre Klinke has remained largely focused on the traditions of his home country, making music that blends folk rhythms with rock, pop, and electronic elements. Thirteen years later, the scope of his practice has expanded to include original soundtracks, field recordings, and sound & video art. With the birth of his two sons, his Canadian roots have grown deeper, and a new approach to music making has appeared --this time privileging timbre and sonic texture over melodic and harmonic development.
Still utilizing his traditional instruments (piano, acoustic guitar, cavaquinho, viola caipira), Klinke began recording a series of minimal improvisations onto magnetic tape (both reel-to-reel and cassette) in late 2020. The sounds of the artist's home surroundings ( birds outside the window, his children playing) seep continuously into the mix, as well as field recordings taken in his travels in Canada and Brazil. The interplay between musical and environmental sounds result in evocative pieces that connect distinct, but familiar soundscapes, filtered through The fuzzy characteristics of analog tape. One might say the primary instrument of this new approach is the tape recorder itself, so infused into the final results are the telltale signs of the medium. The title,'First Sounds', refers both to his children's first perceptions of the world, and to this first offering of music under the name Playback Head, made in the spirit of curiosity, open-mindedness, and experimentation.
