20 August 2018

bod [包家巷] (aka Nicholas Zhu) released their debut album Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧] on Planet Mu sub-label Knives on August 17, with the premiere of a video excerpt of “Side B” via AQNB today. The Los Angeles and Berlin-based producer has been prolific in the last few years, releasing several mixes drawing on everything from networked technologies to Romantic and modernist forms.

The album features an equal part dissonant and calming journey through Zhu’s ambient pop, string ragas and noise aesthetics informed by their Chinese heritage, and classical chorus and composition. The video, directed by J E P by J E P by J E P features Zhu in a desert space building a fence-like sculpture in the wind to the clattering beats and ambient synthesised pitches of limitation and alienation.**

bod [包家巷]’s Limpid Fear [清澈恐惧] cassette album was out on Berlin’s Knives on August 17, 2018.
