Our second release comes from Calmpound out of Nelson, BC. Wen Im Alone was a part of a number of other tracks made using heavy repetition and layering of field recordings as a form of hypnosis. The song is essentially an 8 minute live take performed into a piece of recording hardware. It brings together the outside world and the natural music captured with portable recording units and studio sessions. Calmpound acknowledges every individual's unique sense memory, and his vision was to allow the creation of a unique world through imagination and interpretation of those sounds.
"…the buzzing of fluorescent lights down a long dark corridor, jolts of resonating static, and soaked singing voices through the torn cones of a speaker on the other side of a wall. Things break down but the moment is always perfect. This song is a the hard copy of a learning process." - Calmpound
