Profile Of The Lines


The compilation Profile Of The Lines opens with a bright and luminous sound exploring at first a narrative, musical dimension, with a moving energy. As a counterpoint, the second half takes listeners into an intimate and interior space, ending the album in the opposite sphere -- calm and ethereal. Each track on the album is produced with a different process, resulting in a wide exploration of landscapes, tonalities and textures. "Fading" is taken from Pole's forthcoming album and was composed in Spring 2019 while he was working on music inspired by The Loss of Memory (Dementia). Very old and long-forgotten details from the past slowly come back to our minds where they remain active, while we forget the most recent memories. Daniela Huerta's "LeitMotiv", featuring Cornelia Thonhauser is inspired by words and suspense of movie trailers from the '60s and '70s with a slight B movie touch. Samuel Rohrer's "The Grid", recorded in Berlin, is part of an ongoing process to organically blend textures of percussive and melodic synths with acoustic percussion, singing drums, and its overtones Vladislav Delay's "Six" was created in early 2014 before the Visa album. Jake Muir's "Nilas" was recorded at the Banff Centre for the Arts, having been inspired by the cold climate there. The piece is sourced from material given to Muir by Chris Herbert, plus two personal field recordings made in Banff and Iceland. Hotel Neon's "Monolith", written and recorded in Dayton, OH, Philadelphia, PA, and Baltimore, MD, is a reflection on vast landscape, and in particular the power that high mountains have on us: motionless, timeless, and monolithic forms that still manage to play very active roles in shaping our imagination. Profile Of The Lines is inspired by our collective landscape, the sense of awareness over place and belonging. Mastered by Stefan Betke at ~Scape Mastering, Berlin.
