¥ 1,820
  • Availability:

Our popular ambient writer naps, jason calhoun, was in charge of keyboards, and Russian ambient writer foresteppe was in charge of guitar and field recording. A co-production was released from lily in December 2020.Contains 12 melody ambient songs that harmonize Russian field recordings and warm melodies. Recorded for 4 minutes.It is a work that you will want to listen to in the middle of winter. Limited to 100 copies, numbered, DL code included.

 

The result of a long-distance collaboration between Jason Calhoun and Egor Klochikhin, aka Foresteppe, Pieces of Death grew out of a collection of field recordings captured in Klochikhin's native Russia, with the expectation that Jason would selectively edit the recordings and use them as a Starting point for new compositions. Jason instead chose to use the recordings in full, elevating them from background texture to lead instrument, both musicians now serving as accompanists to the sounds of otherwise unremarkable days. The finished work is one of both broad scope and close attention, an ode to the subtle shifts yielded by life's cycles and repetitions as they phase in and out of one another towards a conclusion, infinite in their combinations but finite in outcomes. As longtime fans of all artists involved, Lily Tapes & Discs is proud to be wrapping up 2020 and welcoming the winter solstice with this masterwork of deep listening.
