ran slavin Product 02
Photography and art by Jewboy Co.
ran slavin's Tropical Agent / Ears in Water is the second installment in Crónica's Product series.
The Product series aims at confrontation and fusion through releasing two works in a single CD, added by a special guest to produce the artwork.
Regarded as experimental publishing, or otherwise, simply as the return to the split strategy of the vinyl in a digital medium, the Product releases work as mini-compilations that stand from the synergy between both works, turning the release not in a mere sum of parts but rather in an emergent product of them.
This cd was made under quiet listening circumstances, often accepting random factors into the process. It seems to me that some of these tracks are open to accepting additional environmental sound and noise occurrence /textures into their composition/environment. More than once I included extra sounds to the tracks after being randomly exposed to their juxtaposition with sounds from the environment while in preview listening. It seemed at times that the tracks can be part of something outside of themselves, part of something wider, blending in a surrounding, open to metamorphosis, to influence and be influenced accordingly on an atmosphere, open to an organic synthesis in an urban environment. ran slavin 1.1.2004
