T. Gowdy mit neuer LP

Tim alias T. Gowdy, der meist im Zweijahres-Rhythmus neue Lebenszeichen in die Welt schickt, bringt Anfang Juni sein neues Album “Miracles” heraus, das den hypnotisch-perkussiven Ansatz des Vorgängers “Therapy With Colour” (2020) weiterführt. Das Material auf “Miracles” entstand 2018 und war ursprünglich für ein bis heute unvollendetes audiovisuelles Projekt gedacht, dass sich inhaltlich mit Überwachungsaufnahmen befasst. Das Album erscheint in den gängigen Formaten bei Constellation Records.

“Gowdy now returns with Miracles, his second full-length for Constellation, which draws on source materials originally performed in 2018 for an unreleased audio/visual project based around surveillance footage—a precursor to video-capped, monitor-based horizons that soon took on new meanings. Re-immersing himself in those recordings, Gowdy disassembles and deploys them as raw source material for new experiments with vactrols, noise gates and analog-to-digital triggering and aliasing, the original recordings juxtaposed anew amidst their successive textural and rhythmic treatments. Gowdy keeps this re-composition process stripped down, elemental and purposive, guided by an ascetic Aufhebung: synthesis as sublation—subjecting a temporal material/theme to analysis and transformation, reintegrating to form a whole that overcomes what it preserves without erasure, reshaping and intrinsically carrying its origins forward.” (Constellation)
