Genre:Electronic / Dance
Moving forward from last year's well received debut EP "Becoming (N)one"on Glacial Industries, v1984 releases his debut for Knives, the label foundedby Jamie Teasdale (Kuedo) and Joe Shakespeare. v1984, real nameChristopher Ramos, is of Korean/Filipino descent and the title "Pansori"reflects his Korean heritage. It has the dual translation of a 'gathering placefor sound' and it specifically refers to traditional storytelling, which in turn isa neat description of the EP. The music here is delicate and meticulously laidout. Even when it approaches noise it's detailed and elegant rather thanbludgeoning, like the piano and arpeggio that give way to a cold crystallinespray and shimmering drone in the openening track. As with every Knivesrelease, visual communication is an integral part of this project. Berlin-basedMaren Karlson's illustrative practice is absurd, technically meticulous andwalks a fine line between beauty and the corruption of aesthetics. Maren hasprovided the artwork for "Pansori", and these traits align perfectly withChristopher's compositions.
