about

For the past five years, Glyn Maier has developed a curatorial agenda for his enmossed label with an emphasis on recyclable and sustainable materials while living and recording within secluded natural environments. His level of dedicated praxis is illustrated with his latest ๐ธ๐‘›๐‘ฃ๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘  ๐‘€๐‘–๐‘ฅ, concluding a dense output of 19 long-form listening cassettes. Capping the ENMX series run, ๐ธ๐‘›๐‘ฃ๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘  ๐‘€๐‘–๐‘ฅ is a deep distillation of the sonic agenda within the series and the label more broadly. Maier is keenly attentive to pace and spatial context, allowing for time to stretch, interweaving lush field recordings and emotive new age passages. All audio in this mix, just shy of the two hour mark, is culled from cassette recordings of classic 1970-80s field recording series (๐ธ๐‘›๐‘ฃ๐‘–๐‘Ÿ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก๐‘ , ๐‘†๐‘œ๐‘™๐‘–๐‘ก๐‘ข๐‘‘๐‘’๐‘ , ๐‘‡โ„Ž๐‘’ ๐‘‚๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ž๐‘›'๐‘  ๐‘…๐‘’๐‘™๐‘Ž๐‘ฅ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘” ๐‘†๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘“, etc) with their core utility being to invoke relaxation. Maierโ€™s intentional recycling of materiality is an homage to respect for the environment, and in turn he is rewarded with bountiful environmental sonics to reshape. As the formal attributes of his selection process are in lockstep congruence with his lifestyle and production output, so does this chapter of the label's output come full circle.

---

Glyn Maier is a sound artist and field recordist living in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina. Non-city outdoor spaces are essential to Maierโ€™s practice. With a formal education in physics and music composition, Maierโ€™s preoccupations with natural objects, landscapes, and their social histories guide his recordings, which are then integrated into ambient electronic works utilizing organic rhythms and complex timbres. Maierโ€™s abstract synthesis work is deeply informed by sound design, but his larger focus is on the agency of both machine and environment.
