Jason Kahn & Asher

Available through the Helen Scarsdale Agency: $11.00

"Vista is a co-habitation of two sets of field recordings made by Asher in the urban landscapes around Boston and Kahn around Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Given Kahn’s preference for controlled feedback systems, it seems that Asher picked mechanical rumblings that were sympathetic with Kahn’s sound; and Kahn collected the quieter textures patterned after Asher’s aesthetic. Collectively, these sets of sounds are stretched, crushed, looped, and layered, and then allowed to slowly crossfade against each other for the course of 40 minutes or so. Very little happens, but the effect of subtle cracklings and irregularities upon the subharmonic throb and motorized vibration is downright hypnotic."
