about

(recommended to hear on headphones / speakers with decent bass response. This album contains a lot of low frequencies). Adjust volume to a comfortable level.

I'm thinking about seeing Agnes Martin's work at a museum in Seoul and almost being moved to tears by the stillness, the calmness, the care, the patience, the love. In this music, I tried to trasmute the idea of a grid - not as an organizer of musical time (although that is a powerful paradigm in dance music) but as the sublimation of repetition and the feeling of stillness.

Each piece is either the entirety or an excerpt of a long piece for modular synthesizer. Each had its beginnings in improvisation, but its details were refined over repeated recordings. Further small edits were made on a computer.
