Glochids – Water on Silver CS (Lime Lodge 2018)
Cassette Edition of the 2016 LP
For Water on Silver, James Roemer brings his Glochids project out of the desert into wetter climes.
Inspired by visits to tropical forests and fern-filled coastal woodlands, Roemer presents eight lush and delicate pieces that connect into a sophisticated narrative.
Water on Silver contains a distinct sonic ecology; non-hierarchical layers from contrasting sources, all interdependent. Diversity strengthens; confusion instructs.
Not representative of, but consistent with, the inherent dynamics of nature.
A model of an idealized radical reorganization of human social power structures.
MIDI composition interfaces with field recordings from a central american cloud forest, while the focused electronics at hand nearly align with a filtered kick drum heard outside the club.
Digital download included with purchase.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi
