why we love this

The quiet contemplation and reverence woven throughout these tracks feel like a humble offering to our earthly environments and the natural world around us. Sounds to pacify and offer tranquility, whenever you might need it.

about the record

Ar Ais Arís is Gareth Quinn Redmond’s fortuitous love affair with the art of tape loops - a practice he discovered while performing with Ross Chaney and Myles O’Reilly in late November 2020.

Fascinated, he spent months experimenting with the technique: "By cracking open the shell of a cassette, cutting the tape and splicing the ends together, I created repeating sound loops of varying lengths. After reassembling and slotting the cassette into the Tascam Portastudio, I recorded and played back the sounds of the tape loop. These sounds were then manipulated using the pitch wheel to make subtle and warbly inflections to the recordings. This is achieved by speeding up or slowing down the playback speed of the tape, which offers dynamic contrasts in both mood and texture."

The result is eight deliciously enchanting minimalistic tape loops that evoke a very rare kind of daydreaming environmental music, filled with accidental miracles and dusty, soothing backdrops.
