I hope these experiments in rendering different vignettes of winter weather create a nice, cozy environment for you.


released March 5, 2021

performed, recorded, mixed, mastered and marker art/layout by John Mitchell

Tracks 1, 2 and 5 were created in early 2021 with a Ciat-Lonbarde Plumbutter, Meng Qi Rollz-5+, the Norns app Bounds and a granular processor. 3 was created in early 2020 with various eurorack modules. Track 4 is a guitar recording processed with pedals and synth modules created in mid 2020. All are ran through a Marantz PMD-430 tape deck, with various amounts of physical manipulation applied during the process of dubbing.

Special thanks to Cecile Duncan, frugivore, Samuel Edmund, less western, ambalek, Nathan Price, tyresta, andrew cs, S. Leidig, colmkil and Youngest Brother for their help and feedback on the sound and art. justmat for the incredible bounds app. And to field collage and mudlogger for their help in providing feedback on some other recordings which helped lay the groundwork for this release. Many have released great things on bandcamp and elsewhere, so please check them out!
