orchid mantis - kulla sunset (Z Tapes)

Z Tapes

"'Kulla Sunset is a memory from when I was younger. I'm chasing dying light through
the field, where the horses graze. It's late in the night at my grandparents'
summer house in Kulla, the Swedish country. There, the sun sets late and bright,
and I follow it through tall grass, staring upwards through clasped hands.
My grandparents sold the old house a couple years ago, but we still visit.

In sound, memories can be stitched together like a collage. There, they may
create new associations and unique narrative forms. Kulla Sunset pulls from some of
my strongest memories—both recent and long passed, distant details and places lost.
These songs are arranged in a cycle: Beginning in the daylight, they follow
the setting sun into night and finally into the dawn of morning. Somehow, this suits
my own sense of memory: In the same way light leaks into a camera, leaving
impressions on the film, every instance of my recollection contains traces from
the glow of memories past—perhaps most strongly from the glow
of the Kulla sun.' - orchid mantis
