Scott Cazan - Swallow
Scott Cazan’s performances and installations speak to a fascination in
the fullness of sound as well as an interest in network and information
theory. Like the writings of those who inspire him, such as Deleuze,
Baudrillard and Alexander Galloway, his work, for all its directness,
has a dark and seductive aura.
Swallow is an album that lingers at the borders between memory, ambience and feedback. It’s built on a patch made of innumerable compositions, the overabundance of which ends up clouding the program’s internal logic. What we hear is the resonance of an impossible space that is, at once, immersive and peripheral.
Care Of Editions has chosen for the unusual policy of paying people for downloading music by using the profits from vinyl sales. Downloads are made available in real time, as records sell, and as soon as the payments can be afforded. This relationship, between vinyl sales and download availability, is charted-out on the backs of each record cover.
