Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
“The Sea Within The Sea”

More crazy waves from Cantu-Ledesma. This time Jefre was assigned by Berlin’s EN/Of label to respond musically to the prearranged album artwork by Dutchman Daan Van Golden as part of their continuing artist/musician collaborative series. This 12-inch even comes with an artist’s print. Van Golden is a versatile veteran artist and is currently exhibiting at the De Hallen Museum in Haarlem, NL. Don’t worry, residents of that magical place called Europe (where there are no borders and I assume you can hop on a train from Lisbon or wherever and be at this museum in like half a day), JC-L will do a free live performance on February 23, which is also the release date of the 12-inch! Jefre says he had the image weeks before the music was done and couldn’t get it out of his mind while he was recording: “In someway I think it did seep into my subconscious and find its way into the music. Bright, explosive, hyper-real flowers of sound.” Also, while you’re hanging out in the EU, scope out his seven-hour tape collage performance with Grouper at the CTM Festival.
