The latest track from Eev, leading up to the full EP release on August 18th, is available now and being premiered by Stationary Travels.
Artist is a term we often casually throw around when featuring the creators of new music, but if there is anyone who embodies the fullness of the term, it is Taylor Deupree. Working across multiple disciplines, Deupree has amassed an impressive body of work not only as a composer & musician, but as a producer, studio engineer, and founder & runner of the revered 12k label, not to mention his work as a photographer which has appeared in numerous books and design anthologies. In addition to his solo work, which has quietly carved out a distinctive and influential niche in the realm of electroacoustic ambient music, Deupree has also been an enthusiastic collaborator with an international array of other luminaries of the genre including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Stephen Vitiello, Marcus Fischer, Arovane, Federico Durand, and Christopher Willits to name but a handful.
And while one might rightly define Deupree’s work by its “attention to stillness” and “inherent quietude”, there is no denying the presence of a drive that is clearly fueling his creative engine and pushing him to evolve and explore new directions and opportunities including with labels other than his own. This includes his recent signing with Nettwerk Music Group where Deupree has begun to release some really lovely new material.
Following the single “Eev” which showed up last month, this week will see the release of “Something That Looks Like Stars“, a succinct and beautifully crafted meditation on the uncertainty of life and ambiguity of perception.
