about

Before the closing of the season and the restart in September I am pleased to present 3 digital releases which are published together today June 13th. During the lockdown I received a lot of demos and I wanted to give voice to new names that I hope you will remember in the future. All of these works are involved in some way with the Coronavirus days.
Flow Control is the project of the Tucson Az based Jesse Anderson. He uses recording techniques which are very fascinating to me like tape loop cassette and reel to reel.

In the desert outskirts of Arizona, the passing winds blow over the mountains stirring the valley below. As it moves through the human settlements and stirs up the raw, untouched sandy grit of the sun-soaked desert, a melody emerges from the collision of natural and artificial landscapes. Ephemeral is a meditation on this process. It follows the melody and conveys its essence as it passes through, disappears, and reappears upon remembrance and is held before the mind. New dimensions and characteristics not fully exposed in the first illumination emerge through this meditation. The impermanent melody ultimately fades into distorted mental images of the original windblown tones, and Ephemeral grasps at its beauty before it completely fades.

Ephemeral serendipitous came together from a small loop on the OP-1 using some pure tone samples. Recording the loop into the Morphagene produced a gritty, semi-generative feel that forms the ambient backdrop to Ephemeral. The album came together when I routed by piano through a granular delay in the Empress ZOIA and paired it with the manipulated OP-1 loop. Weaved together with field recordings from around Pima County Arizona, the four general parts were recorded live onto a Song PCM-D50 and take the loop through various stages of decomposition.
