Premiere: Endurance – Elapse [Vaknar]
“Each artist on ‘Surging Waves’ is musically intertwined with the Japanese music scene, one which continues to gain international appreciation for its wealth of musical heritage, but has often found itself clouded in a slew of prohibitive legalities and societal pressure.
This multifaceted blend of circumstances has led to an emerging wave of artists who have embedded themselves in Japan’s contemporary music culture through their uncompromising and passionate approach.
Endurance, aka Joshua Stefane, resides in Nara, Japan, where he co-founded Muzan Editions. The label has been integral to showcasing Japanese talent internationally while hosting an array of events in Kyoto.
We are grateful to have Joshua contribute an captivating piece for this compilation, one in which he has tried to channel some of the more quiet places in his adopted home through slowly building drones and struck bells.”
