Release Date:08/25/2017;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. Brooklyn based avant-garde trio Sontag Shogun collaborates with NYC label Youngbloods to present their newest full-length effort, Patterns For Resonant Space. Making use of analog sound treatments, found sounds, and solo piano compositions, Sontag Shogun depicts abstract locations and delicate structures within distant, shared memories. Patterns for Resonant Space is offered on very limited edition 12 black vinyl in extra soft reverse-board jacket featuring custom, one-of-a-kind analog lenticular artwork that self-animates when removed from or inserted into the companion polybag. Only 300 made. In tonality and design, Patterns for Resonant Space soundtracks a solitary journey through old photographs, building and deconstructing each composition in tandem with each narrative. The group's pianist, Ian Temple, describes the recording process: This album was an experiment in reverse engineering our normal composition process. We started with sounds and noises, and then I responded to those with piano. We didn't have any piano ideas written before recording day, so I was able to respond in a very pure way to what I heard. With every melodic idea, I aimed to create the most simple possible statement, something succinct and focused to parallel the way that each track is defined by a few very specific sounds. I think we ended up with 20+ short piano ideas recorded in my living room on my childhood upright, and then narrowed it down to the ones that told the best story. In conjunction with Temple, Jeremy Young and Jesse Perlstein utilized a diverse mosaic of electronic equipment to assemble a textured base throughout the album. Calling on tape loops, signal generators, field recordings, an organ, and a glockenspiel, they explored new terrain at The Pines in Montreal. The duo played sounds through amps, micing each room in different spots to capture their true aural qualities. This method of recording would limit the digital editing process and reflect the uniqueness of that particular space and experience. The result of the group's experiment is a hazed nostalgia a collection of 10 compositions passively investigating the caverns and cul de sacs of our shared conscious.;Track List:1.
