LOREN CHASSE

Air In The Sand

(Naturestrip - NS3004) CD $14.25

San Francisco sound artist Loren Chasse’s recording processes revolve around active participation within particular, unspecified environments into which he broadcasts drones, textures, and field recordings. Crickets gurgle within aqueous percolations and tectonic surf crashes against rock; rain vaporizes in a caustic sizzle as it hits electrical wires, compounded by the sharp crack of branches and the slow hiss of sand. Outside ongoing pastoral contributions to the polyphonic Jewelled Antler constellation, Chasse exposes something profoundly beautiful lurking in the shadows of the landscape.
