Jarrod Fowler – Translation As Rhythm

Jarrod Fowler

CD – Errant Bodies Records
Border territories, where music is extremely connected with other disciplines, in a symbiosis full of minimal and abstract frequencies, philosophy and conceptual art. It’s a no-compromise research, focused more on methodology and on the intimate structure of associations, languages and possible references than on its mere and direct enjoyment. The absolute and lean presence of rhythm matrices, the clicks, the sparse noise grafts, the drones, the textual moments and the field recordings stay at the fringe of the artistic substance of this complex work, influenced by the theories of Wittgenstein, Satie, Cage and Kosuth. Those who want to be delighted should read the included booklet: pleasure doesn’t always come from easy solutions, but sometimes even difficult ones don’t guarantee good results.
