Untitled Folding Live Release + Paintings


5. Mär. 2012, 2:14


I released a live performance, from the release party for Folding In On Itself, recorded in New York City on May 12, 2011. The set is very much connected to the album in scope and feel, warm electroacoustic settings with muted kick drums and spacious melodic fragments, but it is a disassembly and reassembly of those pieces, an improvised arrangement based on loops and individual sounds, which also makes liberal use of elements from other material, both finished and in-process.

In this instance I wanted to make something that is as much about the visual, physical art object as it is about the sound. Instead of a package per se, I'm making textural paintings and collages on wood, which come with a code that can be used to download a full resolution file of the music. Rather than tack on a CD to the object, I wanted to call attention to the lack of need for a physical delivery device for the audio, allow it to break free of packaging constraints of any sort, and go a step further than cover art.

Each piece is one in this series of 99, but is essentially on its own at the same time. Each is part of a continuum, so that one leads to an idea about the next, and connects to it, but does not restrain where it can go. It is a music release with new art made for each iteration, a painting with accompanying sound.
