HORZ005 / released in May 2018

Schimnik is the highest order of orthodox monks, and christian orthodox chants were the main inspiration for the music of this electro-acoustic duo. This five part “chant” very patiently progresses to its peaks. The soundscape is created by a minimal use of synths and samples, a bass guitar that leads the narrative and the drums’ brief appearance in the finishing statements.

"Spend time and listen to this in peace. Build love for whatever you dislike because life is bigger then our idea of goodness. It is bigger then us.
Lav was the first and only possible choice for recording this. I could’t have done it with any other person. Choosing these sounds, keys and the tuning in 432Hz was the only possible way to do it. So for me, the record is perfect as it is. This music is me, more real than myself in flesh and blood.”
