“I like being a step removed – from the sounds I’m producing, the forms I’m constructing. Playing very high up, into screaming wind, the sound can only dissipate and be consumed. It can feel like day-dreaming.
The assemblage of this music began on the Greek island of Syros, during a residency called Sounding Paths. It was completed within the following weeks, in Berlin and Tokyo, using field recordings, DX7, synths and guitar.
I’m focussing on re-contextualising the guitar’s material, which always feels very close and familiar. The environments are shaped by sounds from many sources.
I had Phil Houghton in mind when I was finishing this music.
To me, this album sounds like a dying planet that was once full of life, but is now mostly desert with a few pockets of water. This music creates such specific pictures like that, and that's why I enjoy it so much. ggrimes65
