daylily arboretum:

"This is the first full-length ambient project I've produced under the karaoke vhs name, and it's also the first kvhs release since 2021. Most of the material was recorded in early 2024 with some blips and tracks from as early as 2019 making the cut.

One of my most cherished memories/moments within music was back in high school when it started to click with me that sound could carry an intense amount of emotion without the use of vocals/words, and it's been an obsession of mine ever since within both my creative and listening habits. within that, i've come to believe that listening itself is an art form and it can take an immense amount of patience to learn how to take in everything around you. “sympathetic vhs” feels like the outcome of years of taking in sound and finding a way to be fluent within the act of letting it back out into the world, with a variety of personal experiences and pains blended into it all.

For “sympathetic VHS”, field recordings were compiled through a tape recorder in various spaces across Minnesota and Milwaukee, toy keyboards were tinkered with until the ideal sounds were found, and friends and artists were consulted for creative input and guidance. i really wanted it to sound like the culmination of years of “life”, and using my particular resources to figure that out.

life seems bleak, might as well sit down and process it when you can. i hope you enjoy “sympathetic vhs” and find something cool within it.

For fans of sounds pertaining to: love, cassettes, heartbreak, comfort/discomfort, contemplation, stagnation, nature, quarantine, innocent memories, feeling sick, dread, moments of bliss/harmony, the uncontrollable passing of time, etc. etc. etc.
