Virgins

12" LP

Availability: In stock

$19.99

Quick Overview

2013 release, the follow-up to the Electronic artist's Juno-awarded Ravedeath, 1972 album. Virgins was recorded during three periods in 2012, mostly in Reykjavik, Montreal and Seattle, using ensembles in live performance. The sound palette of this work is wider, almost 'percussive' and tighter sounding than previous works. While this album remains committed to a painterly form of musical abstraction, it's also a record of restrained composition recorded live primarily in intimate studio rooms, employing woodwinds, piano & synthesizers towards an effort at doing what digital music does not do naturally - making music that is out of time, out of tune & out of phase.
