Nico Niquo ~ In A Silent Way

a4187673904_10

“..slowly evolving compositions and sound meditations based around the palette of modern grime music minus the percussion. In the songs “Arbor Arco” and “He Loved Him Madly” the grime theme is most present, with droplets of synth and bass rising and melting to suggest invisible kick drums underneath. “Rendered” and “In A Silent Way” begin with simple arpeggios that build to intense climaxes, while closing track “Aa-m” is an almost ASMR-inducing meditation.”

D/P/I ~ Ad Hocc

a3775023600_10

“Ad Hocc” was intended to be listened to on 6 speaker systems (6 stereo pairs = 12 speakers) simultaneously. Unfortunately, that experience is saved for those who bought the original USB card. I was not planning on releasing a “digital” (online) version of “Ad Hocc”, but, as it is my favorite D/P/I release, I am offering this un-expanded edition, set up to play on only 2 speaker systems (2 stereo pairs = 4 speakers). I hope you enjoy nonetheless.” – D/P/I

“Indeed, the intended flexible listening experience of Ad Hocc does emphasize the goal of D/P/I’s axiomatic language being a rearrangeable, modular faculty. Like his visual style — images loosely associated on a white background — the record’s reprogrammability opens up the listening experience as being inherently non-oppressive. Although there is binary division occurring between the “fundamental” and “supplementary” subsets, their rearrangement diminishes any experience being a “quintessential” one; rather, all are opportunities. Ad Hocc becomes a total meditation on D/P/I’s use of material, a consideration of how they interact, a study of their inherently structural design, and ultimately, a defense of their accelerated, gorgeously spontaneous performance.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

“Demdike and Votel’s label delivers this incredible, ancient-but-modern sound collage painstakingly constructed over a number of years out of Youtube samples – total mind-bender this one, somewhere between New Age meditation tape and the sound of your nightmares…”
