"The first commercial release from sound artist Samson Stilwell, Signals has been recorded and produced over the past 6 months, combining synthesized sound and field recordings to take the listener through a rich, dynamic soundscape; melancholy yet uplifting, contemplative yet buoyant. The resulting EP is an experimental vista, combining the harmonic textures of artists such as Tim Hecker, Stephan Mathieu, Philip Jeck and Jacob Kirkegaard, with the compositional strategies of musique concrète.
“For me, listening, active listening, is a poetic stance, one where listening to any sound material can yield infinite interpretations. Music is one of the possible outcomes of these interpretations. One hears, one sings, one talks to oneself, or receives. I attend these moments and have tried to form them here.”
— Samson Stilwell
“Signals is a beautiful, captivating composition, and I’m excited to be working with Samson on this release — the EP reflects the commitment of Sounds et al to collaborate with artists on creative projects, particularly those focussed on craft, function, music and sound.”
— Andy Fry, Sounds et al
The developing textures of Signals thoroughly engage the listener, requiring not simply the physical act of hearing, but the cognitive act of listening.
The EP has been pressed on 10″ heavyweight transparent vinyl with cover elements screen-printed, and digitally printed in Portland, OR."
