A convergence of numerous influences from across the full electronic music spectrum, JVZ forges a unique sound and compositional style in his deeply artistic work. This album, like much of JVZ's single works and collections, gathers a striking set of themes that materialize in a patchwork fashion, forming a narrative of visions and experiences.
The titles suggest a connection between the surreal, the natural world, and the human condition. The music itself weaves an emotional tapestry illustrating moments lived, dreams imagined, and memories reflected. Each subsequent listen reveals a map of hidden details, subtle changes, and deeper concepts, which gives this release a timeless and personalized experience. Intricate mixes that highlight synthetic and organic textures equally, in addition to some very abstract digital and lo fi techniques with the use of treated field recordings are what serve this work so perfectly. We are brought in and out of stunning musical themes while the various sonic scenery changes throughout.
JVZ's experience using trackers and legacy software, his DIY aesthetic and tendency to apply creative limits in his setup and approach, lend to the artistic bent of his compositions. His background in jazz, his instrumental skills, and lifelong passion for all electronic music are tied closely to music he makes and the profound results he aims for. 'What's over here' is the delicate realization of individual humanity and the perfection revealed in moments of imperfection.
