One Instrument / Germany / 2019
For the next One Instrument Session series, we’re pleased to present the Indonesian artist, Fahmi Mursyid.
This mini-album, limited to an edition of 200, includes 6 tracks that take the listener on a warm, experimental journey of varying timbres.
The artist has always had a personal interest in traditional Indonesian instruments, specifically from Sundanese culture, the second largest Indonesian ethnic group, native to the western part of the Island of Java.
Paying homage to this source of inspiration, he has chosen to use Indonesian instruments for almost all of the tracks on the 12’’. Considering the strict guidelines One Instrument gives the artists, Mursyid has succeeded in getting the most out of his chosen instruments.
With each of the 6 different acoustic instruments he has eluded clichè and surpassed physical limitations to shape a bold, alternative musical language.
All tracks are recorded with only one condenser microphone.
Composed and produced by Fahmi Mursyid
Mastered by Giuseppe Tillieci at Enisslab Studio, Rome
