CUTS is the audio-visual project of composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr. He announced the release of the first full-length. A Gradual Decline is out on November 30th via Village Green Recordings. “I have tried to make a record that feels like it’s all come from one place,” he explains.
“My only musical influence on this was William Basinski’s ‘Disintegration Loops’. Not the music, but the process. The idea of a decline in sound really suited the concept of this record. All this music and instrumentation trapped in this declining digital signal. I wanted it to sound brittle and precarious. I also wanted to avoid doing overly dark material, opting instead for something that was more fragile, melancholic and even hopeful in moments.“
“A Gradual Decline” is the first excerpt which shows dark and restless electronic lines. Watch the official video directed by himself.
