Gareth Quinn Redmond - Ar Ais Aris LP
WRWTFWW Records announce Ar Ais Arís, the third album by Irish producer Gareth Quinn Redmond, following his amazing Satoshi Ashikawa-inspired Laistigh Den Ghleo (WRWTFWW 039CD/LP) released in 2019 and 2023's ambient-meets-Irish-traditional-music soundscape Umcheol (WRWTFWW 069LP). Ar Ais Arís is Gareth Quinn Redmond's fortuitous love affair with the art of tape loops -- a practice he discovered while performing with Ross Chaney and Myles O'Reilly in late November 2020. Fascinated, he spent months experimenting with the technique: "By cracking open the shell of a cassette, cutting the tape and splicing the ends together, I created repeating sound loops of varying lengths. After reassembling and slotting the cassette into the Tascam Portastudio, I recorded and played back the sounds of the tape loop. These sounds were then manipulated using the pitch wheel to make subtle and warbly inflections to the recordings. This is achieved by speeding up or slowing down the playback speed of the tape, which offers dynamic contrasts in both mood and texture." The result is eight deliciously enchanting minimalistic tape loops creating a very rare kind of daydreaming environmental music full of accidental miracles and dusty soothing backdrops. It's a very pleasant listening experience inspiring a feeling of enveloping warmth and gentle coziness, with an uncanny touch of spellbinding magic. Artwork by Dublin artist Barry Gibbons. Liner notes from Gareth Quinn Redmond. Edition of 500.
