rupert clervaux & beatrice dillon: studies i-xvii for samplers & percussion

ltd repress. Musician, composer, and engineer Rupert Clervaux was a founding member of Sian Alice Group and is a member of New Build and About Group; his previous work includes mixing credits for labels Treader, OTOroku, Matchless, and Fataka. Beatrice Dillon is a composer, performer, and DJ who has performed at the ICA in London, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and has released on The Trilogy Tapes (Folkways II) and Public Information. The pair's previous collaboration, Sequence 1 (Notes upon Woven Strings) (2014), was performed and recorded at the MONA FOMA festival in Tasmania for release on The Vinyl Factory. Studies I-XVII is a collection of short, sparse, rhythmic pieces created with live instrumentation, samples of live instruments, and the studio computer at hand. This intuitive set of stripped-down compositions is influenced by ethnic and world music, free jazz improvisation, the morning ragas of Bismillah Khan, and the off-kilter reggae of Keith Hudson, as well as the Deroit-Berlin-London electronic music axis and the experimental/minimal compositions of Xenakis, Reich, and Pierre Schaeffer. The recording is conceptually grounded in the exploration of rudimentary rhythms and melodies outside the constraints of genre, and the intuitive, organic path dictated by the musicians' mutual influences at the time of the recording sessions.
