Vivid Synths and Deep Fog
Our new release welcomes prolific Dutch producer Subp Yao and Swiss photographer Lorita Catarin Preiano for a collaboration drenched in deep bass, expressive synths and abstract, foggy imagery.
Subp Yao’s rich discography and distinctive style have established his name on the electronic bass driven scene with releases on labels such as YUKU, Saturate Records, Flexout Audio, Division Recordings and Unchained Recordings. He has gained recognition and support from legendary artists from the likes of DJ Shadow, Noisia and Machinedrum.
Lorita Catarin Preiano loves to photograph minimal, misty and somewhat dark landscapes in which the only moving presence are birds. Her unique visuals have the power of transporting the viewer right in the middle of it.
How does a perfect creative day go for you?
Where is the balance for you between technicality and freestyling things?
Lorita: Normally, when I choose a subject I try as much as possible to set up the camera and the shots so that I get the desired result right away. I don’t like to waste too much time with post production. I particularly like taking pictures with the Holga and Polaroid (they don’t need any post production!) and give fantastic atmospheres and often surprising results! But in general, I go very much with my instinct without planning too much. I photograph what I see and especially feel at that precise moment.
Subp Yao: Back in the day, I would split those things but lately it’s just one big mess, I mix along the way, do sound design sessions at the end of a project, I just do what my mind thinks is best, it’s probably not the most efficient but definitely the most fun for me.
