APL014 >> Off The Sky - Studies Of Lifeform In Transit
       8 tracks :: 54min 37sec :: 76.57 MB

Off The Sky is another sideproject by Jason Corder, whose 
Subsource album "Inconnu" received major warm critics with 
its floating mayhem sounds and textures. I'm proud that i 
may release his new album called "Studies Of Lifeform In 
Transit" on Autoplate. Very warm, breathing layers of field 
recordings merged with ambient electronica unfold big, 
extensive dubby spaces. Endless, timeless looming tracks 
with easy sounds make this album an intense sensual 
enjoyment and especially on the songs "Mileece Reduction" 
and "Nonlinear Surface Tensions" the theme of the changing 
seasons is presented in perfection.

Notes by Jason himself:

"This group of songs (or 'studies', as I think of them) is 
a DSP-manipulation concept piece based around my visual 
and mental explorations of the often chaotic and 
unpredictable seasonal climates here in Kentucky where I 
live. Throughout the entire project, which spanned over 
several seasons, I spent countless hours wandering around 
outside capturing raw natural sounds such as frozen trees, 
wind through leaves and storms to use as textural backdrops. 
Most of the melodic aspects of the studies involved samples 
of an old piano and various guitars run through numerous 
DSPs over and over so as to remove any obvious connections 
to their sources.

The main production method I used to capture the extreme 
unpredictability of the weather was by setting up dozens of 
sample loops run through numerous effect chains in 
Audiomulch. Then by linking various parameters to several 
midi controllers, all the tracks were recording live in one 
take each. That way I think I was able to create plenty of 
little mistakes to give the whole album a somewhat loose, 
unpredictable feel - just as the skies are chaotic."
