Expanding upon and refining both the restraint and immediacy of 2020’s ‘Initial State’ cassette, Boundary comprises 35 minutes of material that oscillates between compacted reductivism and slow-burn atmospherics.
Stemming from a fascination with sound as an invisible yet tangible physical process, Boundary draws from a diverse array of source materials to create a brutalist aural architecture, in which form and temporality are explored with primal curiosity. Reinforcing and augmenting the material’s presence, artist and audio engineer Chloe Alexandra Thompson’s treatment of the album — rendered via a host of analogue outboard gear at Circular Ruin Studio, New York — imprints a palpable sense of texture, weight, and space.
Despite the niche origins of its making, Boundary is presented as an object of subjective contemplation, in which form and flux serve to emphasize the perception and appreciation of the physical senses.
