Loops & Farewell Sketches is the 1st official full length album by Cass., a 1991 born German electronic ambient musician, dj + sound artist. All songs are the result of various late night recording sessions during the last month of 2012. The sound sources vary from old, sampled, pitched, modulated & destroyed vinyl records, a large field recording directory that has been created over years, multiple effected instrument- + synthloops layered on the top of each other, & different small acoustic instruments. All these elements of the album create a meditative looping bed of sound, which is in some parts framed by his own hazy voice. Much of this album is also the sound of microphones in the room, picking up the sound of moving around, or brushing the edge of an instrument.
The artwork was painted by Lea Seppä-Murto in 1979 when she was 18 years old, inspired by the beautiful landscape of her hometown Sammaljoki, Finland.
You can preview & pre-order the album now on Bandcamp. Out next week on 02.07.
