Hanz - Plasty I (EP - 12" Vinyl)
White label 12" vinyl EP, limited to 300.
The key influences for Hanz’ upcoming EPs lie outside music – “They are heavily influenced by film. Things like pacing, tension, comic relief, and climactic moments.” “Plasty I,” his long-overdue new EP, is the first of two recordings that form a kind of mirror shot of each other – you could say one is a frontal shot, while the other a back shot. Both EPs developed in sessions that started right before the re-issue of "Reducer" (on Tri Angle) in 2015.“ I was watching a lot of films and realized the ones I appreciated the most were shorter in length – films like "Tetsuo, The Iron Man".
Over a year or so of working, I decided to trim compositions down and get to the point in underneath twenty minutes per EP. I named this work "Plasty" due to its constant structural changes, it’s as if the sound is being operated on surgically.”He adds - “I like tension and action. I edit my music like a movie, placing pieces of a song inside of other songs. Certain parts / melodies from part one reappear in part two and vice versa. That’s my way of making these EPs compliment each other by making them function like puzzles.
The temporary moments on both EPs are for you to get better acquainted with this sonic environment. For example, the track "A Breathing House" is a short vignette on “Plasty I” that is based on the imagery of a house with breathing windows, doors, and floors.” Cinematic influences are joined by inspirations from “the Surrealists” and the "cut-up" technique” (of William Burroughs & Brion Gysin). “Plasty” is the sound of an artist evolving and emerging through exploration, it’s the sound of an artist breaking free."
