"T. Gowdy has kept up a productive albeit mostly virtual pace since the release of Therapy With Color (his third full-length album and first for Constellation) which dropped just as things were locking down back in spring 2020: performances at numerous festivals including MUTEK Montréal, Node Festival and NEW NOW; audiovisual pieces exhibited at various European galleries and events; a track and video for Constellation's Corona Borealis Longplay Singles Series; sound design for the documentary Atalaya by filmmaker Emma Roufs.

Gowdy now returns with Miracles, his second full-length for Constellation, which draws on source materials originally performed in 2018 for an unreleased audio / visual project based around surveillance footage—a precursor to video-capped, monitor-based horizons that soon took on new meanings. Re-immersing himself in those recordings, Gowdy disassembles and deploys them as raw source material for new experiments with vactrols, noise gates and analog-to-digital triggering and aliasing, the original recordings juxtaposed anew amidst their successive textural and rhythmic treatments . Gowdy keeps this re-composition process stripped down, elemental and purposive, guided by an ascetic Aufhebung: synthesis as sublation—subjecting a temporal material / theme to analysis and transformation, reintegrating to form a whole that overcomes what it preserves without erasure, reshaping and intrinsically carrying its origins forward.

Where Therapy With Color was strictly and rigorously a set of stereo live performances, Miracles fuses iterative—though still spartan—layers of performance. “Therapy With Color was about healing through self-hypnosis; Miracles is about forging a future with memory through subjection to trigger mechanisms ”notes Gowdy. The result is a captivating collection of minimal IDM and oscillated electronics from the Montréal / Berlin producer, working primarily in a 120-140 BPM zone of tonal percussion and corrugated pulse. Gowdy's sensibility and sound palette gets deeper and dirtier As the album progresses, low-pass gate vactrols coalesce into a clear and vital theme, reproducing immanence through woody timbres at times reminiscent of the Shinrin-yoku aesthetic (Japanese'forest bathing') Gowdy consistently heats and heightens the presence of eac, though always with a grainy transcendence rather than invoking any clean pure sheen. h component in the mix, balancing different elements in democratic compression / distortion, DMAking an unornamental and earnest form of mantric-industrial majesty. Miracles is live, corporeal, activated electronic music of the highest caliber, deployed with monastic and meditative focus. Thanks for listening.'
