cinchel is a chicago based musician working mostly with guitar, effects and laptop to create abstract ambient music that is both minimal and dense. focusing on the interaction of the sounds and notes with themselves. attempting to make a lot of guitars no longer sound like guitars. minimal dense music.
cinchel’s first album for pyr is an interpretation of his installation at ascii 5, held at tritriangle, chicago, in march of 2014. recording the event with a handheld recorder, then looping, layering, and affecting the sounds, projecting them back into the room. collecting and looping, continuing the process for the duration of the event. witnessing is an abstracted mix of everything cinchel collected that evening. a document and reflection on the effects of chaos and memory.
