You can stream and purchase the album in digital formats, as well as a limited two-disc package that includes a 4.1 surround sound mix. The surround sound mix is also available on Apple's Spatial Music.
Jason Adams recorded this album alongside Martin Fleischmann at The Honeycomb in Santa Monica, CA.
Jason Adams, performing under the name Rumori developed Deviance from live performances and has really made some amazing music in this album. In the description of the album on BandCamp, the composition of the pieces is described where "Each piece of music works to create its own unique environment, minimal melodies laying a foundation for complex textures and exploration." Each movement follows this structure incredibly well, but they all are so much more complex than the description implies. Pieces like "Shrouded" and "Deviance" emphasize this minimal melody creating significantly more complexity through the polyphonic behaviors of the music. The use of effects also expands on the depth of complexity by allowing expansion into sonic realms the cello cannot reach on its own.
Rumori's Kii EP is out now on all digital platforms. Click here to listen to the premiere on New Noise Magazine.
“Kii was about painting with recordings: patching together loops, deconstructing and repurposing those parts, and then recreating them. It led to this place where the highly digital aspects feel just as emotive as the human performance. It means a lot to have remixes from three artists who straddle that line with their own music.”
Featuring remixes from Cruel Diagonals, Protean, and CD Player. Mastered by Jeff Swearengin. Cover art by Philip Meyer.
All proceeds from Bandcamp sales will be donated to Afrorack.
Jason Adams has announced his next release as Rumori. Kii EP features new piece, "Kii", as well as remixes from Cruel Diagonals, Protean, and CD Player. Kii EP will be released on all digital platforms Friday, December 11.
As part of the Marfa Open Arts Festival closing ceremony, Rumori will perform a 6-hour livestream alongside Josie J and Chris Soohoo. The piece explores the introspection and loss of collective memory, inspired by and centered around The Caretaker's "Everywhere At The End Of Time". Stream anytime between 6p-12a PST today, October 18th, from razethewhitebox.com/live-stream.
Rumori will be featured as an artist for the Marfa Open Art Festival 2020 in a video installation created specifically for the festival. The "Live Drawing Session" nstallation was created in collaboration with divinebrick and Chris Soohoo and will be displayed during the entirety of the festival from September 25 to October 18.
“Live Drawing Session” invites you to sit and experience a distance yet visceral butoh performance prayer by divinebrick, Chris Soohoo, and Rumori, transposed into a figure drawing workshop in motion. Through the guidance of Chris SooHoo and haunting soundscapes woven by Rumori (aka Jason Adams), this session offers points of inspiration stemming from movement, video, and sound. It invites watchers to participate in its wholly improvised performance through their own drawing. Create a composite illustration of body in flow. Focus and capture elements of mood and meaning, or just observe and allow the spectrum of dreams to invade your consciousness as you become part of this new collaboration.
