Mastered by Helge Sten (Deathprod, Supersilent) and composed, produced and recorded by Jeremy over the last three years, Passerine Finale is a varied collection of songs and disparate sounds, from arranged static noise to extended melodic drones, improvised and chiseled at, ignoring form or structure, and completed the moment things “felt” something.
Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Jeremy has been a member of Arcade Fire since 2004. Outside of the band, he has recently collaborated with bandmate Sarah Neufeld and world-renowned dancer and choreographer Peggy Baker on composing music for a large scale dance production called Who We Are In The Dark and performed it live at various dance festivals. He’s also been touring and performing his solo material across the world since his first album, Limn, was released in March of 2016.
Inspired in his solo endeavours, Jeremy has also been exploring the visual side of the work, improvising with a variety of tools using video, lasers, oscilloscopes, experimenting during composition and during live performances, producing video work responsive to and informed by the material. He has created all of the associated artwork for the album.
Passerine Finale will be out via all digital platforms this Friday with details of the limited edition vinyl version being announced shortly. An exclusive look at the vinyl can be seen below:
