Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This recording documents the progression of Brian Chase and Angus Tarnawsky's ongoing duet, showcasing their vision of an electrified-drumkit. In a physical sense, they use a drumkit wired with receivers and microphones, feeding the raw sound through external effects processors and devices such as samplers, all parts of which are capable of being controlled and manipulated in real-time.For Brian and Angus, electrifying the drumkit allows a transition from simply improvising with rhythm, to composing entirely new sonic worlds and subsequently inhabiting them within a performance. Once the audio from Brian's kit goes into the electronics of Angus' set-up, the sound is transformed, becoming an entirely new entity. This in turn influences Brian's playing, and the process continues as new music is produced through this method of continual unfolding. Beats layer on top of beats, textures atop textures, tones on tones. Constructed entirely from the multi-channel recording of an improvised live set, the two tracks for this release were edited and shape-shifted by the duo in post-production, further blurring the line between stage and studio.A strictly limited edition release, each of the of 25 copies has been hand cut at 33 1/3 rpm on transparent polycarbonate plastic using a Presto 6N lathe from the 1940s and is accompanied with a printed transparent insert, housed in a custom PVC sleeve.Brian Chase is a drummer and composer based in Brooklyn. Widely known as a member of the rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs, his diverse creative output encompasses multiple projects in the New York music scene, including Drums & Drones, an electro-acoustic project focusing on the application of just intonation to drums and percussion.Angus Tarnawsky is a sound-artist and experimental musician living in Toronto. Interested in altering perceptions and perspectives of environment through sound, his work frequently explores interactions between acoustic and electronic sources, utilizing analog feedback systems and modular synthesis.

Brian Chase - Drums & Drones II

Drums & Drones II
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (In Context Music)

Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Building upon almost a decade of work, Drums & Drones II follows master drummer and composer Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) into unchartered sonic realms. Using multiple techniques, the acoustic resonance of a single drum is explored, with every new work emphasizing a different method of investigation.The project traces its inspiration from Brian's time working at La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela's Dream House installation in TriBeCa, NYC. As he spent more time immersed within the installation, its complexity and beauty started to reveal itself in its magnitude. On the technical side, this was partly due to the distinct tuning system - Just Intonation - that was used to create the sound and the way it 'plays with' the listening process. Brian grew intent on finding ways to adapt this tuning system, and what it invites for the listening process, to his primary instruments of drums and percussion.The album was recorded over a four week artist residency at Headlands Center for the Arts in Northern California. Spending day and night in a secluded barn at the top of a hill, the residency provided the opportunity to live and work immersed in the creative process. This focus very much relates to the way in which the music functions: as the listener tunes into the sonic characteristics and pace of each track, its subtleties and meditative properties are gradually revealed.
