about

„Pathways“ marks a departure from Jan Warnke’s previously showcased mixture of synthesized lines and compressed noisiness. Without loosing the personal nature of his work, the two tracks unfold a merely acoustic world, wirling around blocks of fieldrecordings and forest sceneries slipping under the microscope. „Pathways“ is a bricolage of small sonic images hold and glued by amplified nature sound palates, gradually manipulated.

„Path I“ incorporates reversed sitar-like sounds around nature motifs and clicking water drips. Circulating in narrowed stereo, the music warps into a jazz tapestry with hollowed frequencies shimmering as softened harmonics in the background with a followed reprise of the first part.
The b-side „Path II“ opens with slightly detuned organ notes filled up with sonic litter of down-grained metal clanks imploding into a choir webbed with hushed notes of bassy lines and filtered synth drives. Turning into a dreamlike state the music becomes once again muted and sparse until returning to swirling fragments of piano and voice.

"Pathways" is a memorised version of nature acoustics and adds it's soundtrack qualities to a wide range of images flickering before the eyes. A dark room with eyes closed is recommended.
