“School teacher by day and architect of angular space sounds by night Connor Bell has politely offered his vision of hi-fi (read: it doesn’t sound recorded under water) bedroom pop under the moniker of Shedding for just under a decade. In that time, Shedding has shifted in and out of sonic consciousness, toggling between the type of meditative ambience that earns high marks amongst the Hecker School graduates and a hook-heavy psychedelic amalgam of resonant synths and acoustic noodling.”
Balancing improvisation, arrangement and orchestration, his sounds are derived from variety of tools and various processing environments, both analog and digital. While focused on restraint & reservation, he tends to believe that audio works should go on only as long as they need to to convey the idea at hand.
«Butler proves himself to be one of many musicians working today who has made restraint into a productive creative ethos, a common diligence that makes this contribution no less meaningful, and at times downright memorable.»
Collaging raucous electronics, manipulated vocals, and her mother tongue of lush string arrangements to kindle organic, texture-rich digital soundscapes.
