about

This album is the first in the "experiments and field recordings" series.

The whole thing came together in one afternoon/evening more or less. After spending a few weeks on a deep dive of Chassol's music (with a good bit of Mononeon sprinkled in), i made the track "pacific-x" one thursday in august. I was so excited by it, i franticly rummaged through my iTunes & voice memos, looking to scavenge whatever fragments i could. To my surprise, i discovered an array of material ranging from full improvised songs i'd recorded in one sitting and forgotten about, to field recordings from a trips throughout the year. By the end of the evening i had pieced together what lives here now; a mini album about quiet yet powerful moments.

Every song is either entirely recorded or has key parts recorded while not at home (outdoors, travels, friend's garages, etc).
Gnossienne no. 1 is a cover of my mom's favorite song.

This album was mostly recorded in iPhone voice memos.
