about the record

Giuseppe Mistretta is an artist and writer based in Glasgow. He works with synthesis and field recordings to create atmospheres for others to inhabit. Mistretta is interested in what can unfold in the present moment and how different variables can help shape it.

“This release is about engaging in your actions in the present moment. The two recordings are improvisations made with synthesizer and field recordings. They were made at my home in Glasgow at a time when the experience of seeing or playing music with others was not possible. It felt strange to perform these pieces without others giving me stimulus to guide the sounds. I found it difficult to know what to choose, what to keep, or what leave out. The decision was to take whole recordings, good and bad. The two pieces that I chose were made over a couple of days and started with a similar configuration of voices. The results feel quite different. The moments took me to an array of places. Listening back to these recordings I feel a range of emotions from excitement to shame. I have come to the conclusion that the time has passed and the recordings are an attempt to represent it. They are a kind of loss that has encouraged me to grow. I hope you find them engaging and they spark thoughts, feelings, and emotions in some way.”
