Christopher Bissonnette Shares Track From New LP on Kranky

Kranky Records have announced details of the new album from acclaimed Canadian musician/sound artist/designer Christopher Bissonnette, set for release on November 6th. Pitch, Paper & Foil’ continues the lush, densely textured analogue synthesizer explorations of previous album Essays In Idleness’.

Bissonnette says “This new series of works reflects an evolution of my adeptness with modular synthesis. As with my previous release ‘Essays In Idleness’, ‘Pitch, Paper & Foil’ was constructed from a range of synthesis and compositional techniques. The goal with this album was to form a collection that exhibits more restraint than previous works. Modular synthesis can be an unruly medium and taming it in order to produce delicate or subtle tones can be challenging. As with ‘Essays…’ I have allowed the artifacts of the process to find their way into the finished product. Tape noise, distortion and by-products of the random sequencing method all contribute to the character of the final recordings.”
