Leave / Trace
(Glistening Examples - GLEX1301) LP $17.00
Formerly operating under the name Mites, Shakhnes has been recording and performing in Tel Aviv since 2008, releasing work in private handmade CDR editions, and internationally though Alamut, Mystery Sea, and Copy For Your Records. Leave / Trace blends field recordings from peculiar and mundane origins into sumptuously detailed and surreally original new forms. Shakhnes captures and juxtaposes otherwise overlooked details of commonplace events, placing his work at the fulcrum of contemporary tape music.
