about

Jeremy Young's August Tape Sketches is a work of tonal collage rooted in the exercise of balancing improvisational haptics with focused restraint.
Young is a composer and improviser of concrete electronic tape music from Montreal, Canada. A member of the Montreal-based experimental poetry_sound unit Cloud Circuit as well as a part of the electroacoustic modern classical trio Sontag Shogun, Young's work uses a sine and square wave oscillator system, 1/4" tape loops, captured and filtered radio and EMF signals and sound treatments from amplified surfaces and objects. His primary artistic interest lies in the analog treatment of surface-based audio and the notion that both the audio signal and the media used to record it, should equally contribute to the creation of a sonic narrative.

August Tape Sketches dwells in extended notions of time and space, with melodic fragments repeating and dissolving in intuitive fashion, allowing for a listening experience on the edge of logical musical information. The fragmented takes centre stage as Young develops a narrative of contemplation and indirect emotion. On this album, Young conjures up gently dissociated musical sketches that are soft-spoken yet far-reaching. The musical language used is that of electroacoustic composition, but Young fuses that with a perspective of instinct and benign distance. The definition of things on August Tape Sketches is not one of confrontation, but in the treatment of the sounds used lies its true nature, dreaming up a lullaby of concrete musical.
