Basanta / Architek Percussion: Privacy of Domestic Life
Artist: Basanta / Architek Percussion
Title: Privacy of Domestic Life
Product Type: VINYL LP
This album, The Privacy of Domestic Life, explores thresholds between temporal stability and instability, human- and electronically produced sounds, and popular and contemporary musical idioms. There is something here for listeners of all persuasions: Adam Basanta exploits the interaction between human and machine performers, Taylor Brook alchemizes a kaleidoscope of metallic sounds, and Beavan Flanagan finds sonic harmony between drummers playing at different speeds. ARCHITEK PERCUSSION is a Montreal-based quartet specializing in the performance of experimental, minimalist, multi-disciplinary, crossover, and electroacoustic chamber music. Founded in early 2012, the quartet has quickly established itself as a dynamic force in Canada's vibrant new music community; equally comfortable in performing classic repertoire and exploring new terrain through commissions and premieres. Architek's diverse regular repertoire is at once engaging and challenging for audiences, and is presented in a manner inspired by the quartet's belief that given proper context, no audience member should feel alienated by the nature of a performance of contemporary art music.
