why we love this

It never ceases to amaze us how Passepartout Duo always comes up with new instrument ideas to keep dissecting and reimagining sound in enchanting and inventive ways.

about the cassette

In Daylighting, Passepartout Duo continues to explore their fascination with building personalized musical instruments. A new suite of electronic devices that functionally integrate textiles and synthesizer circuits accompanies the two musicians’ familiar set of small portable percussion. These strange machines aesthetically recall imaginary landscapes connected to a trip to the Meili Snow Mountains in China, and inspired the seven tracks of the album.

Highlighting the potential of the new instruments, the musical process began from the careful shaping of each sound from its visceral fundamentals. The overall structure of the music is built through momentary collisions between layers of sound that exist in parallel dimensions, continuously and independently. These collisions explore timbrical, rhythmic, and melodic unison ideas that act as mile markers on listening paths. Symmetrical compositional ideas spiral out from the centerpiece of Daylighting that bisects the music of the album with its austere process, expanded and explored in each surrounding piece.

The design of the cassette summarizes the project as a whole, including machine-generated structures, geometries of weaving, and visual illusions, all distilled into the soy-based inks of the risograph.
