Breaking And Entering reviewed the video ‘Progression’ from the album ‘above/so below’ with some kind words:

Experimental electronic artist Detraction has a new video out from his recent album “As Above/So Below.” It begins with a slow-motion shot of a snow shower on a busy Milwaukee street, eventually switching to a rain shot filmed in reverse. In the second half, close-ups of the puddles flowing down the curbs reflect a fascination by perpetual motion of matter. Then we are taken into Fresh Thyme Market, where people are lined up with their groceries, ending with a shot of a big unicorn balloon. It seems to be a commentary about the movement of society against the elements while other objects remain perfectly still. Detraction is working on another album due out later this year.

Once again, big thank you to Ben Slowey and your pure words. Thank you once again.

You’re ever so multilayered,
and complex in design.
Your breath is music,
as is your skin,
a beautiful canvas
resisting gravity,
and its
past trauma.
You are effervescent,
and thought provoking.
One with history,
and enlightening
trajectories in the making.
You are a child of the universe.
Born from the need,
for a better future and home,
for all sentient beings and distant cousins,
beyond Here/Now.
Yes, you are loved,
forever and always.
Just continue being
who you are,
and strive for the Light.

And

Life is a sequence of events,
as are thoughts.
One can be edited,
in real time, as
the other tends, to
fade quick and,
jump out of
step.
Eventually nothing makes sense,
to the observer,
the observed,
and so on.
We live in a dream.

75 points of volume reference. This is considered a simple edit by all terms, for balance differentials and other effects are not yet assigned.

I’ve been really busy since late August. Still trying to finish a music video, working on a new album, two retrospectives and collaborating with a like-minded musician. I’m pretty excited, but must remain devoted to my many “lists” and stay on target. Nonetheless, I’m not going to be board for a very long time.

侘寂

“In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印, sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常, mujō), suffering (苦, ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature (空, kū).”

Breaking And Entering reviewed as above/so below with a serenade of kind words:

“Detraction is the experimental electronic project of Larry Dubec. His latest album he believes is his “most beautiful and coherent compilation he’s ever produced.” Created over the course of twelve months, the record is a venture through space and time using ambient synth passages and vivid, dreamy wonder. There’s a sample of a Black Lives Matter chant in the track “Family” as well as field recordings in “Concrete Kensho.” It feels like a time lapse of everything that’s happened this year. We commend Detraction on a terrific soundtrack of dystopian bliss, and look forward to what he does next.”

A big thank you to Ben Slowey for the warm ego-boost, for your words are pure gold to me. Thank you once again.
