about

originally released as a cdr (edition of 100) from analogpath.

Even in these early months of 2013, there has been a lot of brazen electronic disfigurements this year, including the aggressive scuzz of Pete Swanson’s Beer Damage side project, the long overdue reissue stream from Recollection GRM, and the recycled fragments of Andrew Pekler. ”Place & Distance” is as varied and rewarding as any of the above selections. Cody Yantis, who also contributed to the lovely recent Tilth LP on Soft Abuse, has created a beguiling album that is not easily categorized. Sound and its sources are treated as a tool for real expression, not something to be locked away and untouched. As such, Yantis freely manipulates errant electronic frequencies, swatches of acoustic instruments, and unwieldy samples into compelling music that has a natural, unharnessed asymmetry. ”Place & Distance” covers a lot of ground as well, from the bowed sonorites of “With Water” and the noisy debris of “Within a Bamboo Box” to the oblique jazz references on “Unbuilt.” Yantis’ work is genuinely adventurous and always exciting. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia
