Nickolas Mohanna - Sight Drawings (vinyl LP)
The new acousmatic, expressionistic and cinematic production by New York artist and composer Nickolas Mohanna.
"Culled from field recordings, sampled orchestral noises, and voice recorders, Sight Drawings explores the spatial impressions of sound within a delicate acousmatic language; producing expressionistic collages that translate into wide-screen cinematic terrain. Across the seven pieces, Mohanna cuts a tapestry of kinetic digital noise, deconstructed guitar, and sweeping brutalist strings, picking off from previous work and engaging the listener with a materiality of sound from the backdrop of a scorched landscape and collapsing infrastructure." —C Meyer
