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.

I’m a day late in posting this, but ‘as above/so below’ done!!
This is the most beautiful, and coherent compilation I’ve ever produced.
Heavily atmospheric and borderline spiritual, this material is a 12 month process of congruent experiments. ‘as above/so below’ is a study of signal delay/decay and longevity within time and signature.
