why we love this

Like rediscovering a snow globe bought on a childhood vacation years ago, Rachika Nayar’s fragments brims with cherished memories.

about the cassette

fragments is an EP of sonic miniatures New York sound artist Rachika Nayar constructed from guitar loops and in the familiar comforts of her own bedroom.

While growing up and developing a relationship with the instrument and her capabilities, using delay pedals to improvise layered guitar pieces evolved from a practice into a deep source of self-exploration and restoration for Nayar. Her fragments EP reveals the types of raw guitar sketches that make up the core from which these grander mutated compositions often originate. The form remains complex, informed by virtuosic, dexterous guitar playing, but the collection of sound retains a sense of primitivism, and represents a new experience for Nayar in sharing such an intimate part of her creative practice.
