Words+Dreams is BACK and freshing KI, the first solo electronic joint by Chonus (Tony Gedrich). Limited to 100 emerald green C44 tapes, this is W+D’s 12th cassette, and calling it “deep” would be too two-cents. The first track mildly grasps the mix of what’s about to happen in KI, then the bass bubbles and the density of your body changes. Like, the frequencies of sound petrifies your physical self, and moving is your last option. The music has you struck, and shifting may fuck up the planet’s alignment with whatever it’s patterned with, wherever.
But, oh! Does Chonus make you feel KI. So much so that causing a catastrophic magnetic shift in reality might be worth the risk of getting up and dancing. There’s faith here between Gedrich and the listener. It’s egoless in artistic pursuit, while enticing the audience to “let loose” their soul and submit themselves to channel all their emotions through movement. And as sculptures shape the physical, Chonus builds upon a higher form of structure, surpassing the usual routine tape you reel and putting a shine on that magnet you call a play button.
KI comes out this Saturday, and Words+Dreams is throwing Chonus a tape release party at Irene’s Capri Lounge. Bring this world into a new dimension of dance-together!
