A FIGURE OF LOSS
“ Whatever else arrived today, you can bet on the fact that I will be playing the K. Leimer disc first. A Figure of Loss is comprised of eight particularly sad and wonderfully beautiful pieces of ambient music. K. Leimer proves to be one of the best in this field. “ — (FdW) Vital Weekly
A figure of loss takes Leimer’s music into highly personal terrain. Written and recorded during two dark years, the resulting work hovers in proximity of a calm and placid consistency, tenuously balanced on expanding and contracting foundations. Built mostly around modeled and treated piano and digital synthesis, a sense of coherence emerged from piece to piece during the recording and editing process, yielding a sustained, but disturbed elegiac atmosphere, seemingly content to meditate on its own specific set of limits. But A figure of loss reaches from well-defined patterns to fragmented and shifting densities. This is a music of reflection, setting itself at a distance from loss in order to possibly comprehend it. The CD includes a portfolio of photographs by Tyler Boley and a download code for the entire album. It was mastered by James Savage. A figure of loss is also available in multiple digital formats.
Sadness carries fatigue
This day is the same day
The night dried up
White all red
