Silent Your Body Is Endless
CST071 180gLP • DL
Release Date: 17 November 2010
Matthew's initial CD copies of Silent Your Body Is Endless (available by writing him at his website) trickled through a few hands in Montreal in 2009. The album went to the top of CKUT's music charts within a week of being aired, and garnered well-deserved praise from the smatterings of music press that managed to stumble across it.
Ramolo's Khôra project is based chiefly on acoustic/electric guitar and field recordings, with extensive signal processing and digital interventions conditioning these sources to create an immersive soundworld of drones, chimes, rings and other pointillistic sonics. His longform compositions contain lovely stretches of relatively unprocessed and fully recognisable guitar work, with picking patterns and chord sequences that evolve/devolve into more signal-bent and DSP soundscapes. The results are highly organic and meditative while retaining plenty of icy shards, bubbling distortions and passages of controlled monumentalism, making this anything but an ambient listen.
180 gram virgin vinyl LP pressing comes in a thick 25pt chipboard jacket with 3-colour silkscreen print in black, burgundy and metallic gold inks. LP includes an 11"x22" silkscreen poster. Jacket design by Matthew Ramolo. Poster design by Joe Dodaro.
