Pimmon: Smudge Another Yesterday
Pimmon is the alias for electronic composer Paul Gough. In the last decade, Pimmon has forged an international reputation for creating dense, challenging and engaging electronic music. Smudge Another Yesterday is Pimmon’s first full length release in five years. This release picks up and goes further from the point where the acclaimed Secret Sleeping Birds left off. Smudge Another Yesterday is an exploration of the song behind the noise; the secret whispers hidden in the static.
Within these vast and spacious works are endless fragments shaped and distended into magnetic states of subtle movement and pulse. From beautiful, foreboding pieces sung by hidden choirs to crackling, lava-flow like ambience, the mood swings of Smudge Another Yesterday are steeped in bristling commotion and stirring intimacy. It is a startling return from an individual and distinct artist.
Smudge Another Yesterday was mastered by renown Italian composer Giuseppe Ielasi. Pimmon has collaborated with other celebrated artists of his field – including Fennesz, Oren Ambarchi and Keith Rowe – and has recorded for various labels around the world including Tigerbeat6 and Fat Cat. This is his first full-length album for an Australian label.
