Seth Price


Seth Price's suite Coinos Driftos announces itself with the sound of a rolling coin -- a punctuation that repeats throughout the record -- before dropping the listener into a storm of harsh winds and far-away bells. When the storm abates, listeners find themselves in a desolate field of stuttering electric harp and electronic sub-bass. Side B emerges from a mist of gentle tones that soon give way to a juddering contraption of dropped coins and clacking noises, which itself seems to summon the arrival of a war machine -- a glorious squall of high tones, bristling with Helmholtz inner-ear sensations, all just barely kept in line by a loping, irregular bassline -- that resolves into a final, more personal, piece of field recording.


Seth Price made the music in 2023 by improvising three straight-through takes on Arp synthesizer, bells, and electric Nagoya harp, often playing two instruments at once, with all signals routed through pedals and processors; these tracks were sequenced before the addition of overdubbed bass guitar and field recordings. Mastering by Giuseppe Ielasi. Clear vinyl with no labels. Silkscreen print on transparent PE sleeve. Signed. Released on the occasion of Seth Price: Before and After Writing at Zweigstelle Capitain V, C.A.S.A. -- Palazzo Degas, Napoli, Italy, March 23 -May 04, 2024.
