This nontitled/selftitled cd is a short but very intense musical journey where, with the use of consistent and therefor recognisable musical formulae to the listener, reused and sometimes repeated motives, language if you will, 10 short stories unfold, throughout, compressed into a hermetic environment of unique sounds and minimal movement within each subtitle of the cd.
This work is a statement of sorts in abstract music, and a conclusion of a 5 year project between HB&JC, two very diversely operating musicians, where live studio sessions formed the basis of an extensive mixing and editing process, in a search for extreme homogenity of complex sounds and ecliptic movements, where improvisation continuesly led to restructuralisation and enrichment. Resulting in a language in itself, refering mainly to it self. Music that expresses nothing else but musical, rythmic and sound matter, it mainly hints, and speaks thru a repetition of codes and coded language, wich reveals more of itself in the proces of listening thru the course of the cd, where one "song" comments on the ones before and to come. Originaly performed electro-accoustical material, of bassclarinet and drums, became the basis for further sampling and resampling and was feeded back into the pit to enrich the basic layers. It is therefor in the end also recomposed improvisation.
At the same time the music on this cd has been compiled and ordered or structured if you will, with the intent on building up a strong atmospheric and expressive environment throughout its entire build up, up to its conclusion, where light is reached and a new yourney may begin. We call it abstract romantic music.
The release is packaged in an exclusive light cardboard 3-panel jacket sleeve, etched in full colour by the Extrapool Crew from Nijmegen. It is our new look that we intend to continue for subsequent releases. It looks more alive , fragile and personal then the very professional -but dull- looking digipacks.
