Nimbes

by James Ginzburg & Yair Elazar Glotman

11.99 / Sold Out


Subtext recordings presents the soundtrack by James Ginzburg and Yair Elazar Glotman produced for the collaborative installation "Nimbes", developed with Joanie Lemercier for the 360 degree dome in Montreal's SAT centre. The soundtrack, realised within the vast interior of Berlin's Kraftwerk power station, employs the cavernous reverb of the space in response to the video's encompassing narrative of scale, time and entropy. Centred around the use of contrabass and elemental percussion, the stark rendering of instrumental sound crafts an evocative portrait of this former industrial site, mapping an overarching texture onto the underlying acoustic compositions. The project draws parallels to Ginzburg's sonic spatial explorations within emptyset alongside Glotman's own forensic examinations of rhythm and tonality initiated through his work as Ketev, bringing the two into a formal dialogue through techniques of acoustic production. The release is accompanied by a remix from Eric Holm, reforming the material through his dense custom created signal chains, and a remix from Yair Elazar Glotman who extracts the essence of the original recording and sculpts it into an adeptly controlled vista of sound.
