why we love this

Sounds move between rhythmic and free-flying, building bridges between structured and haphazard sonic worlds. It feels like an act of restraint not to reach out and touch the air or your ears, grasping for the textures woven into the tracks.

about the record

The album's ten tracks have neither titles nor accompanying text, standing alone as what Ielasi himself has called "isolated sound worlds." They are nonetheless unparalleled in their plasticity, acoustic events with a rare degree of tangibility. Ielasi evokes physical objects, some of which seem to be constructed out of paper and cardboard, while others are based on the mechanics of elastic materials. Of course, these objects are hallucinations, and precisely because Ielasi constructs them so masterfully, there’s no need for any further information. Here’s to everyone creating their very own sculptures while listening to Rhetorical Islands!
