CUTS (A Gradual Decline EP Release Tour | Bristol)
CUTS, the audio-visual project of composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr, will release his debut album ‘A Gradual Decline’ through Village Green Recordings on 30th November. Available on vinyl, CD, and digitally (Cat No: VGLP048 // VGCD048 // VGDA048), the album will be preceded by a new EP, entitled ‘A Slow Decay’, on 5th October.
Summoning 11 widescreen, electronic compositions in response to global political and environmental breakdown, ‘A Gradual Decline’ addresses the planet’s current fragility using actual field recordings of ice collapsing from glaciers. Weaving these momentary, dramatic events directly into the DNA of the music, CUTS has sculpted rhythmic elements out of geological transformation.
“We are living in the age of the Anthropocene and it feels like everything is in decline,” reflects Anthony. ”We’re in a moment where extinction is regular. I wanted this record to reflect these frailties.”
“I have tried to make a record that feels like it’s all come from one place,“ explains Tombling Jr. “My only musical influence on this was William Basinski’s ‘Disintegration Loops’. Not the music, but the process. The idea of a decline in sound really suited the concept of this record. All this music and instrumentation trapped in this declining digital signal. I wanted it to sound brittle and precarious. I also wanted to avoid doing overly dark material, opting instead for something that was more fragile, melancholic and even hopeful in moments.“
