Sima Kim :: Variations for Music Box

A wind-up music box states its theme and Sima Kim assays eleven variations, playing guitar and tape loops. Most are very brief, the merest whisper in the ear of an idea, while a handful stretch beyond three minutes.

Kim always writes between the lines. If you don’t listen closely—and I am not necessarily urging you to do so—you might miss it. He possesses the uncanny ability to freight the air with meaning, suspend something in it that hangs forever, long after the reverberation dies out. Kim’s variations pass in less than half an hour and each is subtle as the leaves just barely shifting on a hot summer’s day. Hearken and you will be surprised by how very adeptly the tracks shift from light to dark.

After the main program, guests Monolyth & Cobalt and The New Honey Shade provide extended, combinatory remixes. The three pieces are strong and coherent enough to warrant an EP of their own, but how nice that they are appended here.
