LOOPY DAY - ILLUMINATION
(SpaceController Records - SPACD 12 - 2014)
Rays of light passes through a crystal. On their way they are bended and turns into rainbow colors. The red rays are deflected most, while the purple goes almost straight out. When the light-rays hit a wall in the crystal, some continue out through the wall, while the rest is reflected back and continue their path through the crystal and is further deflected and broken up into more rainbow-colors, until they again hits a wall. For the spectator standing outside the light-rays that penetrate the crystal-wall make it appear shining, and the rays that stay inside the crystal make it to cast a shadow.
A similar kind of reflection and refraction occurs when jbrandtp sends his quiet insistent guitar-playing through a setup of digital effects. The effects work here as the crystal. The sound is modulated and bended. Some sounds are thrown back and further altered. The sounds can get crystal clear, and they can accumulate in cascades of almost symphonic character.
Illumination consists of 2 medium and 2 long improvised and spontaneous tracks. The compositions are forceful and lingering while constantly changing and heading to new places. Illumination is Loopy Day's hitherto most abstract work and is the fruit of jbrandtp's 5 years of working with guitar, loopermachine and effects.
