When summer ends there’s a distinct sense of a loss. It’s a matter of time: time fading, time coming. Memory is juxtaposed to expectation as the acceptance of time is brought by change.
Originally conceived for a radio diffusion in 2013, the track is based around three distinct development lines (a bunch of loops, some field recordings and layered samples) as a form of dialectic between memory, time and change. The original track was an unedited recording of a performance using a cd player, an iPod and a reel to reel tape recorder while this one is a digital manipulation for a cleaner audio spectrum.
While reworking the audio spectrum and editing the track, I became aware of how memory is essentially an aesthetical rewriting of facts and editing is the grammar of it. So, if history is a description then memory is an interpretation.
"Although the logic underneath is extremely clear this music is not so easy to empathize with, should anyone expect a so-called “linearity”. However, the vulnerability of a sensitive being does not need that. It’s a fragile gift reserved to chosen addressees, hopefully not destined to be sold for opportunistic aspirations in the only life we were given."

"This is quite a fine piece of electronically treatments of field recordings, or a rather a combination of treatments and clean recordings. It adds another fine work to Adern X’s small catalogue of similar electro-acoustic works. Not too intense, not too much easy listening; I guess just like the way we enjoy ‘m best."
