Environs (ALRN045)

by Laica



1. Environs I (20:16)
2. Environs II (17:49)

For his Environs album LAICA continues the less-is-more path trodden on his earlier works. Where previously he was removing melody leaving just a smudged and faded memory - with Environs he has taken his sound a step further, removing instrumentation all together.

Built entirely from field recordings, the composite sounds of his album have been edited, looped, treated to layers of reverb, run through various resonators, sped up, slowed down, stretched, granulated and eroded - creating an entirely new environment.

Environs' stunning artwork, provided by Dylan Fleet, provides the first impression of the aural treat that lays in wait. Professional ears, along with words of encouragement have come from a variety of sources, notably Ken, Greg, Mat, Mike and Carrie.
