Our friends Clockwork and Avatsim have recently re-emerged from the studio with this sizzling new release for Vakant. Kudos to Vakant for prying these improvisatory live-set cuts out of their paws for a release.
Like their previous stuff, the whole of Conducting The Method is moody and tasteful, but this EP leans toward more experimental and IDM-oriented goals while remaining grounded and danceable. The leading single is definitely one to watch out for...
"After first performing together at Sonar Festival with what was essentially a live version of our respective “B.O.A.T.S.” and “Adamant” albums, Thomas and I decided to expand on these ideas for something more broad and improvisation-centric. After months in the studio drinking nothing but amaretto and working on new music for this purpose, our new live experiment (now simply called CW/A) was ready. The reception on these shows was so (thankfully) positive that Vakant eventually pressured us into releasing some sections as tracks. “Conducting the Method” is nothing other than a sample of what this new project is about: a collection of three excerpts taken from this year’s performances. To round things off, we invited over our friends Dead Heat for a reinterpretation of one of our tracks. We can state with confidence that we are excited these tracks are no longer confined to our club and festival performances and can’t wait for everyone to hear them. Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as we enjoy playing them out." Francesco
