Chris Wind - Paintings (Cassette)
My interest in musician and writer Chris Wind was piqued when I found a charming handmade cassette in my friend’s collection with an address in Huntsville, a small northern Ontario town where my grandparents lived when I was a child. It’s a beautiful blip on a map surrounded by deep forest, and it’s exciting to think that somebody was up there tinkering on synthesizers and home-recording when I was lounging lakeside with my Gramps.
Paintings is a collection of collaborations with Chris Wind supplying electronic back-drops to a selection of friends improvising over top with various acoustic instruments. At times deep listening jazz, and others minimal electronics and 6-string scree.
Unplayed vintage cassette.
