UR Sounds 003

Seth Kasselman - Left Out c90 (UR Sounds 003)

Abandoned, left to rot and melt, the perfect syrup for the latest cassette offering by Warm Climate’s Seth Kasselman “Left Out” is an experiment in analog tape abuse taken to extremes, full of ephemeral debris. Sourced primarily from cassettes found at Goodwill thrifts, Kasselman stretches, mixes, and beats “theme and variation” into the ground with the aural equivalent of blurry vision. Taking the idea of nostalgia and turning it into a fog of passing sounds, “Left Out” is both familiar and completely disorienting. This 90 minute sound collage, meticulously crafted like most of Kasselman’s work, also sounds as though it was pulled from a burning garbage can. In addition to sourcing his sounds from other people’s leftovers, Kasselman also points out how the Goodwill itself, by acting as a non-profit, allows their CEOs to get wealthy while treating their underpaid employees, often disabled, like disposable objects.

UR Sounds 002

Seth Kasselman - Mmediate Rolls c30 (UR Sounds 002)

The solo clarinet debut from Warm Climate’s Seth Kasselman. While the instrument has been a staple of Warm Climate’s sound, Mmediate Rolls ditches rock action and affected syrup in favor of raw acoustics. Taking cues from adventurous solo performers like Roscoe Mitchell and Steve Lacy, Kasselman straddles the line between modern composition and fierce improvisation. Structured themes are put through a series of chance operations, creating the two unique performances presented here. With no extraneous instruments keeping foot, Kasselman allows himself to play with form and nuance as only a solo performer could. Edition of 200.
