MINIMUM RESISTANCE (LTD RED LP + MP3)
coloured 12" Vinyl D
Minimalist abstraction from Jonas Munk on red vinyl, limited to 300 copies with download code included.
Minimum Resistance is Jonas Munk's most abstract and minimalist album to date. Ten ambient pieces based on guitars – often processed into soft, slow billows of sound. There's a rare aesthetic clarity in these pieces, allowing each sonic component to breathe and resonate. Here Munk works with a restrained sonic palette and it's an album which demands patience from the listener. Yet, in its bold simplicity, it carries enough emotional weight to be deeply rewarding.
It's an immersive album, an invitation for the listener to sink deep into a series of mesmerizing, but peculiarly undefined, moods.
Minimum Resistance celebrates slowness, reclusiveness and simplicity. There's hardly anything groundbreaking about this kind of music, but rarely does it flow as naturally and effortless as on this set. It's clear this is the work of someone who has been refining his craft over the course of two decades. Besides producing his own music, Jonas Munk also works as a recording and mastering engineer, and has slowly but surely established his own sonic signature. It's the kind of work where subtle gradual changes and miniscule textural details has a tremendous impact on the listener. [info sheet from distr.]
