Mem1: +1 

Interval Recordings (2009)

“Unlike trees or their roots, the rhizome connects any point to any other point, and its traits are not necessarily linked to traits of the same nature; it brings into play very different regimes of signs, and even non-sign states. The rhizome is reducible neither to the one not the multiple. It is not the One that becomes Two or even directly three, four, five…” –Deleuze & Guattari: A Thousand Plateaus (1980)

+1, Interval Recordings’ second release by Los Angeles-based electroacoustic duo Mem1 (Mark + Laura Cetilia), introduces listeners to a series of collaborations between the duo and nine guest artists: Jan Jelinek, Ido Govrin, Area C, RS-232, Frank Bretschneider, Kadet Kuhne, Jen Boyd, Jeremy Drake, and Steve Roden. Whether the collaborations took place in an old cabin by the lake, on a hot and hazy day in a painter’s studio, or floating through the infinite void of virtual space, the resulting works act as transportive vessels. Removing us from our surroundings, they deliver us to a place that cannot exist in our daily lives, a transformative space in which impossible realities collide and time ceases to exist. Comprised of lush tapestries, fuzzy dissonances, echoed rhythms and waves of electronic wash, +1 is electroacoustic chamber music for the twenty-first century.
