SS055 JEPH JERMAN – ‘a fidgety and excitable engine’ C40 5€
For more than 25 years Jeph Jerman, previously with the moniker Hands To, has heavily explored the realm of field recordings and the devices to record it. Over the years his sound has become gradually more gaunt and essential, leaving more and more the electronic aspect apart and instead increasing the acoustic size. This made the sound of his compositions, if possible, even more organic, succeding to play entirely acoustic sets using only small objects found in nature such as stones, seeds, pine cones. In this release he present two non-stop moving tracks composed using only detritus and cheap second-hand devices founds in the Arizona Desert. Edition of 100.
