CD (ltd. 175)
During the last ten years this moderately active figure of the St. Petersburg underground has been engaged in acoustic research, almost invisible for most people but passionate in its cosmologic nature. The result of these experiments turned into a fusion of seemingly incompatible genres of modern music – techno and improvised noise. However in the interpretation of Porch Nap this paradoxical combination sounds quite natural.
The album features selected tracks of Porch Nap dated 2007-2017, most of which were reworked in recent years. For five compositions additional parts were recorded by honored figures of the Russian experimental scene: Fedor Svolotch, Alexei Borisov, Kryptogen Rundfunk, Brompton's Cocktail, as well as by the famous American noise musician Phillip Klingler aka PBK. And the final track "Intelligent Noise Monday" was remixed live by Alexander Zaitsev, known as a member of the band EU (Ёлочные Игрушки).
Porch Nap's creative method is rooted in deep minimalism and almost complete disregard of musical setup in its traditional meaning. The basis of almost all compositions is built on live recordings of an analogue feedback generator transformed by the author’s algorithms of digital processing. Peculiar frequency combinations and extreme binaural effects obtained in a random manner during improvisations will arouse interest of the most inquisitive music lovers. Recommended to listen in headphones. Not recommended to listen before sleep.
