aerae is a weave of improvisations executed on various instruments (koto, rebab, positive organ, Coupigny modular synthesizer), captured and then treated as if they were field recordings. It’s about reducing the instrumental gesture to simple expressive material, shaping it while loosing control over it, letting it grow until there is no more readability in terms of ways of playing. Just like bad weed destroying the order of a highly organised garden.
Originally released on Senufo Editions
Still probably my favourite thing that Kevin Drumm has released. Makes my entire body oscillate. Should ideally be listened to at very high quality, on very good headphones, in the middle of the night. Boma Ye
