Ned Raggett Long overdue of me to hear some of Knit Prism's work and this is one striking introduction. The basic palette of sidelong ambient/improvisational composition is at work, but the combination of textures, from rough mic treatment to distant serene tones and much more, results in one of those releases that could make any label proud. Part of a tradition but also a distinct addition to it. Favorite track: Untitled (Side A).

about

New Cassette by Michael Pouw aka Knit Prism.
Artwork by Dylan Aycock

I first discovered Michael Pouw's project Knit Prism from a release he did called "Growing" released by Avant Archive a few years back. After hearing it I went on a bit of a hunt to try and track him down. The mystique of an artist with little to no internet presence only increases the appreciation for their work. The purest artists are those who choose to be happily damned to internet obscurity. That being said Knit Prism is no slacker on output and has built a large catalog over the years with releases on many fine labels such as; Digitalis, Stunned, House of Sun, Gift Tapes, Worn Habit, Cloud Valley and Fadeaway Tapes.

"Pace" (aptly named) was recorded in that same era as his work on Avant Archive. This cassette here has a similar feel with lazy overlapping phrases that seem to fold over themselves until you forget where and who you are, being taken with his use of space. Few artists understand how to work with rhythm in an unfixed way, Knit Prism works the way nature intends. -Scissor Tail
