Tremors / 12“ Vinyl, Tape, Digital / 2019
Tremors is a collection of seven tracks that reflect a subjective view on electronic music progressions. The seven tracks, selected from a constant changing working pool of sounds and sketches, developed over a period of one and a half years. The album acts as a kind of metaphor for an inner constant stream of sounds that seem to break over and over again, revealing the ever-changing leaps and bounds of Nahold's work. Static states encounter resistance and jumpiness. The sound fragments and arrangements reach into the depths and dynamics of electronic noise music and coexist on an abstract dance surface of the viewer.
The music follows a multi-channel narrative, even though it was eventually recorded mixed and consumed in standard stereo resolution. Tremors explores the idea of space and sound shapes compressed in headphones and stereo PAs. To implement this feeling, Nahold worked with ambisonic techniques and special stereo mixdowns of multi-channel arrangements. The immersion effect persists and demands attention.
