in between patches

Seil Records just released in between patches by elinch, check it out here.

Performed on a modular synthesizer, ‘in between patches‘ consists of 23 individual parts. Each of these patches can take up to two months until they are finalized. During that time, elinch records various states to listen back, decide if something is missing, or whether a track should go in a completely different direction. These recordings often have a special spontaneous appeal, as they are not about perfection, but rather capture the temporary mood of a piece.

Making each of the album’s parts a snapshot of an intimate moment – fleeting, evolving and disappearing.

Lightbath Selected Public Works Vol. 1-4 Now Available

Selected Public Works Vol. 1-4 (Lightbath)

Selected Public Works Vol. 1-4 collects four years of modular synthesizer performances by composer/improviser Bryan Noll with his Lightbath project. The majority of these works were originally presented in video form showcasing—in real-time—the physical act of coaxing music out of a mercurial box of colorful wires, knobs, and lights.

Making these videos helped Noll develop his sound and process as Lightbath. One can hear such artistic development by tracing Vol. 1’s early modular works in 2015 up to Vol. 4’s selections from 2018.

Themes of change and growth flow through the collection; watching the videos, one can actually see the instrumentation subtly shift from piece to piece, and upon closer listen the music begins to reveal an invisible thread connecting past to present.

“These pieces are artifacts of specific times and places,” says Noll, “Each piece is like an entry in a journal that takes me back to where I was living, who I was loving, and the lessons I was learning. My life is encoded in this collection—it’s all there: my discovery of this beautifully wild instrument that saved my creativity, my first move away from NYC, the Great American Eclipse that catalyzed the devastating end of a long-term relationship, learning to forgive and rediscovering my purpose, traveling the US west coast, and the weeks leading up to the NYC performance that became full/new, my split with Emily A. Sprague released earlier this year on Commend/RVNG Intl.

Each volume has been carefully sequenced and re-mastered by Noll to present this music in fresh and vibrant detail. Each album features gouache artwork and typographic layout by Michael KempenSelected Public Works, Vol. 1-4 released on September 27, 2019, and is available on Bandcamp.

As Pitchfork puts it: “Once you have submitted to these videos, it can be hard to pull yourself away.” “The artfully unpretentious demonstrations… occupy a strange, sui-generis niche: Featuring balmy sounds, blinking LEDs, and low-key set-dressing, they are part performance, part tech tutorial, and part audio-visual wallpaper.”
