Release refers to the last part of sound’s shape, the movement from sound to silence. This album investigates this transition using sounds pulled from both electronic and analog instruments: mostly synthesizers, piano and guitar but also from recordings produced after the artist moved to Baltimore. These sounds were then processed using various audio effects, vocoders and electronic equipment before ultimately being mixed into this, final form.
