The Unfoldment EP
Notes from George De Bruin
During a conversation, I mentioned to John that I had started a netlabel. His immediate response was that he would send me an EP. I cringed. I had decided early on that I wasn’t too keen on releasing singles or EP’s initially.
My reservation about releasing EP’s is based on the perception that they are generally used as a marketing gimmick. Typically a tie-in for a larger release: a track from an upcoming album, and two or three throw-away tracks.
But, I shouldn’t have given it a second thought when John is the artist, because he is just that: an artist. Even a short work by him is worth paying close attention to.//
￼￼Take The Unfoldment as an example. The four tracks that comprise this release are an enigma. The titles are in different languages. They have similarity in tone and texture, and yet are different. Deep, dark ambient spaces for you to explore.
The Unfoldment clocks in at around thirty minutes in length. That’s somewhere between one- half and three-quarters of a full length CD release. But this isn’t a half of an album. It is a complete document that doesn’t fit the format of a full length album.//
As for the titles on this release? We’ll leave that for you to decipher... Something to think about as you experience these works. And that makes this release all the more suitable for Cerebral Audio, despite any initials reservations on my behalf.//
