Vinyl: Sold Out
Description: Steve Roden’s debut with Champion Version contains two splendid tracks on a limited edition 10" titled 'Wanderer'. These pieces were specially commissioned by dance conceptualist Flora Wiegmann for a film projection of the same name and exhibited during the 2010 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art. For 'Hands. Breath. Feet' Steve has recorded a series of improvised piano experiments, broken them down into their most basic form, rebuilt the remnants and mixed them with an array of indistinguishable found sounds to create a fragmented and beautiful track which is wonderfully minimal but wholly engaging. An incredible reworking of the debris. And the glacial theme continues with the B side. 'Wanderer' is a twelve minute long piece that evolves seamlessly throughout with sparse yet effervescent guitar components that unconsciously place you in a state of pure calm. Both compositions enable your thoughts to drift away. Headphones and peaceful surroundings are recommended.
