Contrasts: Loren Connors and Chris Forsyth
Contrasts is a limited edition split series on cassette in editions of 100. Each release features a veteran of a particular style with a more recent artist of the form. Each have contributed a piece of more than 20 minutes’ duration in exploring the tape medium.
One set features laptop composers Pimmon and Deep Magic both in sync with their pulsating and subtly symphonic ambience, another couples avant-guitarists Loren Connors and Chris Forsyth. Contrasts is completed by the pairing of synth master JD Emmanuel and Barn Owl’s Evan Caminiti working the synth instead of his trademark guitar in pursuit of transcendental meditation.
Contrasts is only available from the Preservation website. Price for each includes shipping. There is a limited discount for purchasing all three using the discount code CONTRASTS.
