It gives me great joy to announce the next artist we have to share their quiet details interpretation is the inimitable Brock Van Wey, here as bvdub.
With a discography spanning nearly two decades and a musical history going back much further, he’s forged a unique and highly creative path and created a musical identity that’s completely his own.
Brock was one of the first people I asked to be involved with quiet details and took the idea to a place I could never have imagined.
People familiar with his work will recognise his unmistakable sound signature - all- encompassing washes of emotion - and here we find a delicate subtlety and exploration of the edges of sounds that makes this album such a wonderful addition to the series.
Over the course of the six pieces on the album, bvdub’s signature melodic richness is on full display - beautiful and spine-tingling passages create huge expanses that engulf you entirely - and the range of dynamics is astonishing. From soft and peaceful to overwhelmingly powerful - this is music to take you to the deepest places - made by an enigmatic and special artist with an uncompromising vision.
quiet details has always been about total creative freedom for the artists I love to explore what it means to them - this album is a perfect example of that, a truly wonderful piece of music that reflects Brock’s personality and stays true to the ethos of the label, it’s an honour to be sharing it with you.
For artwork we saw something almost blinding - yellows, red and oranges to reflect the nature of the album. It was a pleasure to make a piece to realise that.
Made in-house with paper-making, natural dyes, mixed media, collage and analogue photography.
As usual, the album is presented on the physical edition, a custom 6-panel digipack with a separate fine art print too.
The CD is presented as a single track but not a continuous mix - I asked Brock before the idea was in its fully formed state and he, quite incredibly, made the album in a stream of hyper-concentration before I mentioned it.
I wouldn’t change a single thing about it and it’s still best enjoyed in a single sitting, as the album sequencing is very carefully fashioned and makes total sense as a complete journey.
Huge thanks to Brock for the music, being a part of the series, and becoming a friend in the process.
