Taken from "Unnatural", the forthcoming album by Patrick Graham & John Sellekaers due on February 25 2020, Lacuna is the first of a series of three singles released each month for free with their accompanying remixes.
Lacuna testifies of the dynamic at work between Canadian percussionist/improviser Patrick Graham and Belgian sound artist John Sellekaers where the vast percussion-based sound palette is sculpted to create a dark and enigmatic soundtrack, a physical sound immersion into some imaginary ritual.
We've asked our dear friend and close collaborator Mathias Delplanque (KEDA - Foch/Delplanque) to give Lacuna the remix treatment. His re-envisioning of Patrick & John's sustained tones injects the original with pulse and dub elements (reminding of his work as Lena) without losing the sense of space present in Lacuna but framing it into new territories.

Deep respect for the continued research and discovery and deep diving on prior compilation themes. A massive lesson in "where it's from is not necessarily how it sounds" and how "diversity" is only the tip of the iceberg/mountain/what have you. Open the borders of your mind, this compilation is way ahead of you and it's rewarding work and pleasure to make the journey catching up. Anthony Childs
