A: SY-4 Berlin Mix
B: SY-4 Budapest Mix
Hanno Leichtmann writes: “SY-4 was a four-channel sound installation I presented at the SYN/CUSSION festival in May 2017. It is a homage to my most beloved of electronic instruments: the SY-1 Syncussion Drum Synth by Pearl.
The installation, an 18 min loop, was made exclusively with recordings of the SY-1, with only a touch of reverb added here and there. SY-4 Berlin Mix is more-or-less one loop of the installation, in a stereo mix.
SY-4 Budapest Mix was recorded at 4D Sound, Budapest, during a residency in August 2017. For this mix I mostly worked with unused prerecorded sounds and samples of the SY-1, run through a ER-301 Sound Computer.” – Hanno Leichtmann, Berlin, 15.ii.2018
Influenced by producers J Dilla and Flying Lotus, Jaw Gems make loosely improvised songs that are equally vibrant and nomadic. Their new album is remarkably carefree, but they wanted it that way. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 30, 2016
