"When listening to and approaching my field recordings something happens. The sounds live their own life and put together, stretched, warped, reversed and processed they paint pictures, letting me visit new places. I want to experience sound, examine sound, break apart and build."
The history of nordBecks musical creations are as old as the modern days. His back catalogue can keep you busy listening for weeks as he has probably published thousands of tracks on various digital platforms, CDRs and homemade cassettes. nordBeck is also a well respected live artist, surprising his audience with improvisations breaking genres and expectations. His focus has never been to release physical products but to reach out with his work.
When Martin sent us this demo of his processed field recordings made during a week in the swedish countryside of Blentarp, Skåne, Sweden it sounded so X^#¤ good we decided to take action and start a tape label which marked the birth of Purlieu Recordings.
Blenterop 1491 is part of a two release set where a longer approach based around the same recordings, "Blentarp 2017", will be published on nordbeck.bandcamp.com
. The limited C66 will include download codes for both releases in this set.
