about

clade 2.5 "vietnamese piano"

in august of 2012 we found ourselves in a house in hanoi with an upright piano. on our last evening we decided to set up a few microphones and see if any useful material might allow itself to issue forth

these eight pieces have had their beginnings and endings trimmed to various degrees from the original recordings but have otherwise have not been modified in any way. all treatments were applied in real time and no other sound sources were intentionally employed

these recordings were never intended for release in this form but as they have mellowed on the platter they seem to have grown more beautiful and portentous. thus after some deliberation we decided to offer them to you here

each version of this totem is available in an edition of 50 copies

"The black and white tone is the kind that drains the sky of its rainbow and the house of its comfort, stripping it all back until the notes are left to hang there, bare, vulnerable in the failing light." - James Catchpole for Fluid Radio

"...sounds like bunch of decaying cassette tapes in the best William Basinski tradition" - Vital Weekly
