Revisiting

Andrew Marino

Revisiting marks Andrew Marino’s first official solo release after several collaborative releases and tours with Andrew Weathers. Like his photography, Marino is no stranger to working within a space or limitation and doing so with an improvisational mindset. In this case, it’s working with twenty minutes of tape rather than a frame or available light. Both share another similar quality, which is living in the moment.

Made of recordings dating from 2008—2010, Revisiting takes us on a journey through the work he has been doing for years he’s been quiet. Recorded in homes and studios around Greensboro, the two pieces on this cassette serve as a sort of aural document of time there. Among the improvised guitar drones, details of the location faintly surface, but not often—the drones here are dense and weighty. Marino’s sometimes dark, sometimes uplifting sounds might be compared to Oren Ambarchi or Belong.
