Zaïmph; Between The Infinite And The FiniteYew
YEW 007 LP
Long Playing Record
Between The Infinite And The Finite is Zaimph's first solo studio recording. Three new improvisations capture field recordings of stolen conversations, live radio and echoes that shimmer in a reverberant magnetic darkness of empty corridors. Spectral spaces entwine with the corporeal, amplified strings blossom in explosions, repetition and ominous tones of destruction and decline, slowly sequenced into a fragile space of beauty.
The instinctive activity seeps into our deepest subconscious. Zaimph is the solo project of Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards, Hototogisu, GHQ). Since the mid-90s, Bassett has been exploring free-form improvisational music and spontaneous sound in her collaborations and solo work. Between The Infinite And The Finite is comprised of three new works using analog and digital synthesizers, processed voice, field recordings, piano and amplified strings.
Recorded in the intimacy of Brooklyn's Bunker Studios by Stephen Conover. A horror takes form in the living contradiction which exists in the clash between the infinite and the finite. Everything that's here exists. Artwork by Marcia Bassett. Edition of 300.
