Rewording of a Tangible Abstraction | ... Nor here, Nor there cplt presents his debut EP, “Rewording of a Tangible Abstraction" to the first steps of western classical music history, a meaningful beginning. The project is inspired by the artist’s childhood, spent immersed in textural ambient and drone soundscapes, both Eastern and Western classical traditions, world folk, together with the musique concrète inputs of friend and collaborator Ōtone. These themes are not only the aesthetics but also the center of, thoughts and technical process behind the creation of the pieces. The opening track, 'Kaspar is Moving Out' is entirely made with sampled material recorded from a mobile phone. The story goes that cplt’s host family was having a heated discussion during dinner time, which inspired the producer to take some time off his meal to go sound hunting around the house. Sonically, It’s a reference to cplt’s dedication to contrast, an interplay between tradition and future, harmony, atonality, and noise. The chants are the resonance of an admiration and respect to the first steps of western classical music history, a meaningful beginning to centuries of sonic discoveries. The opposing element tends to the present, and to the future, atonal, and amorphous. The second track “Nor here, Nor there” was made in a collaboration with sound artist and field recordist Ōtone. It is a tribute to the other universe of cplt’s childhood, Indian traditional music, and to his collaborator’s fascination for urban soundscapes. The piece is composed using an Indian harmonium, deconstructed and processed digitally, layered with Ōtone’s personal field recordings. For the wholesome experience, cplt recommends listening in a quiet confined environment, preferably seated or horizontally positioned, taking close attention to physical and psychological comfort. credits cpltcplt.bandcamp.com
