pan y rosas releases lanificus by reid karris!
reid karris is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, sound experimentalist and improviser hailing from chicago, illinois trying very hard to get all the music stuck in his head out for all the world to hear. after spending years as an odd guitarist trying to fit in with the world of rock music reid shifted his focus towards improvisation and noise. his primary instruments for doing so are prepared guitar and drum kit sent through electronics.
on reid’s newest album he continues to explore his concepts for improvisationally composed music. on lanificus he used: a prepared zither and a drum kit augmented with metal bowls and bells. the sounds were created and captured acoustically without processing. “although the sounds are audible the sound waves also exist on a physical plane which then enter into the listener and takes shape within their consciousness. it is then up to the listener to construct the album within their mind.”
