Yann Novak
Slowly Dismantling

On Slowly Dismantling by Yann Novak, he deconstructs ambient music, slowly. It reflects change and his own experiences growing up and coming out. The cover shows Hotel Washington - a building that served as a home to a LGBTQ+ community in Madison, Wisconsin where Novak grew up. The building burned down when he was 17, leaving him wondering, at a crucial stage in his life, how the place could have helped him. This cathartic album shows that liberation through change is possible.

Yann Novak
The Future is a Forward Escape into the Past

Looks like Yann Novak’s been reading Terence McKenna again. The latter’s remark, quoted in the title, refers to a modern age at a dead end and for whom the only sensible direction is backwards. Using highly restrained combinations of field recordings and subtle laptoppery, Novak weighs in on time, memory, context and other timey-wimey problems.

Yann Novak
Ornamentation

Interesting stuff from Yann Novak here, with a record that is intended as a specific response to the modernist theoretical writings of Adolf Loos. Ornamentation is about rejecting the exclusive elitism of Loos by using supposedly ‘low quality’ elements like field recordings taken from his phone. He mixes such things with his modular synth-work for a simmering abstract meditation on labour. Out on Touch.
