C. Reider – Awkward Hugs
This new release by C. Reider ends a string of releases of older material that had been held back unreleased. This material was recorded in 2007. This is some of my most approachable, least “difficult” work.
“This is some work I did in 2007, directly after ending my work with the drone collective Drone Forest. I wanted to do some music that fell far outside of that group’s constraints (no beat, no melody). This music reflects an interest in minimal techno that I had at the time. The exploration of beat-oriented material during this time eventually led to the series of releases I called The Electret Quintet, which merged the accessible material presented here with a more experimental approach.”
