Artist: Arexibo
Album: 카운터! (Counter!)
Format: Digital / Tape
Cat.No: CHI023

Release Date: 2nd October 2020

After making waves in Seoul with her all-female DJ collective and her multimedia artwork, Arexibo is releasing her debut EP as a producer. 카운터! (Counter!) works upon her proven dancefloor sensibility, weaving in contemplative moments of ambient, minimal electronica alongside bold melodies and luscious synthwave.
Made by connecting and extending virtual synthesizers, this slippage between quiet granular textures, pretty icy minimalism and moments of musical extroversion frenetic rhythmic scenes are at the centre of 카운터! (Counter!). While tracks such as 쌍둥이자리 Gemini are frantic and trance-inspired, fin glides with the symphonic ease of an early Boards of Canada track. On 3, she creates a sense of nightmarish, childlike weirdness, recalling compositions by the 20th-century minimalists. In 𓆉)))) 𓆉))), Sci Fi soundscapes meet obscure tuning systems.

“’Counter’ is a word that presupposes a pair,” says Arexibo, “and it also implies a balance of power. When a force of similar size pulls each other in opposite directions, the two are temporarily placed at a standstill. My attitude of producing and creating is no different from this balancing act.”

The release of 카운터! (Counter!) is accompanied by a music video for 𓆉)))) 𓆉))), directed by Arexibo, a simple but moving single shot which recalls the early screen tests of Andy Warhol. “Through a high-speed photo shoot that borrowed the typical form of portrait photography, I thought ‘How about the audience stay at the vague boundary between pictures and videos for a while?’” says Arexibo of the video.

About Arexibo,
A mixed-media artist based in Seoul, Arexibo explores the relationship between image and actuality through camera images and sound. She is a quarter of the female DJ crew ‘BAZOOKAPO Seoul’, who organise music events in Seoul. As a musician, Arexibo concentrates on the ‘floor’ as a fluidic space, full of politics. She has been featured in Mixmag Korea and OBEY Korea. 카운터! (Counter!) is her first solo release as a producer.
