The past few months I’ve been collaborating with visual/sound artist Jeroen Diepenmaat in the development of a new and very special Esc.rec. release: a one of a kind art object ánd music medium, directly related to a live performance. Sneak preview above. Expect the release soonish.
To me, music and the visual aspect of releases and live performances are deeply intertwined. I’m always on the lookout for that Holy Grail that combines the best qualities of music and visual art. At the same time I would like to see a more direct relation between the Esc.rec. releases and the live performances I organize. I may have found both in my current collaboration with Jeroen Diepenmaat. Needless to say I’m excited about this!
I definitely want to explore this new path further (both with Jeroen Diepenmaat and with other artists), so I guess we’re looking at the birth of a series of Esc.rec. releases that is in a completely new ‘one-of-a-kind-art-object-directly-related-to-live-performance’ category. Amongst other things this also means a completely different price tag in comparison with ‘regular’ Esc.rec. releases. To clarify the differences for customers I decided to slap a label on it.
I came up with ‘Sediment’. I feel this name conveys the essence of the new series. In time it might turn out to be a sublabel, who knows. For now you can recognise a Sediment release by an extra Sediment catalogue number.
