Seamless – Cassette/digital release on Case Records

This is not music, it´s storytelling without words. You might think it’s a field recording from the future until you hear ghostly images from the centuries before us, haunting the narrative. You are trapped in Borgan`s sonic maze, oscillating between timezones and technologies, from analog synths to the digital haze of contemporary life, and you feel it all pass by as memory glitches: Stockhausen, 70s psychedelia, then something reminiscent of the baroque instruments, as if Mozart was playing his spinet in a robotic reincarnation, then droning helicopters hovers around you, could be urban police squads hunting looters and rioters, and you hold your breath, as if the subconsciousness of the pandemic is floating through the air, spreading its omnipresent fear. And the field recording shifts to the microbiology of virus trapped in a Chinese laboratory planning its escape, and you hear the alarms bells, and you now you are hallucinating, the virus gonna fuck up your language, your words and linguistic reflexes in the search for a deeper meaning in it all – this record is a conspiracy of sounds – recorded at the edge of language. It’s a requiem for something that never existed.
