1 (scaffolding) by billygomberg published on 2020-03-13T03:57:51Z Scaffolding is, essentially, a digital private release. More info at the below link: http://www.fraufraulein.com/billy/portfolio/scaffolding-digital-2020 ------- Scaffolding was recorded in March and April of 2019, while the building we live in was being repainted. Green netting gauzed our view and shaded our interior. Work was not regular: some days the temporary structure would be busy, weeks would pass without work being done. Some days work would be relatively quiet, others days quite loud. Editing and composition took place through the rest of the season, with ongoing work in 2019 and 2020. Both the field recordings and synthesizer material are left mostly as they were recorded, with edits for clarity and pacing, touches of EQ and dynamic processing, some light flourishes added in the mix. An earlier edit of Scaffolding was shared privately in 2019. I am using Scaffolding to conduct a small experiment in the distribution and reception of “this kind of music” in 2020. This experiment may continue with more releases in the future. This is not “against labels,” or “quitting Bandcamp” - it is for something else. I am thinking of you, of us. This is something I want to try.
