"Quo Modo Deum" translates to 'This is the way of God', which sound artist Jeph Jerman invokes through a 2 CD release starting with intoning bells, proceeding through six recordings of minimal drones of varying character. Each piece is a beautiful subliminal backdrop of static or slowly shifting tonal tapestries built from indeterminate sources that assume an ambient attitude, but surprise in subtle details.
• Show Bio for Jeph Jerman
"Jeph Jerman is a musician who began his musical career drumming and playing in bar bands. In the 1980s, he became aware of other sonic possibilities for his drum kit and started learning to improvise and record his own music. During this time Jerman was a frequent collaborator with other musicians who were also exploring improvisational techniques. In the mid-1980s, Jerman founded a cassette label for the distribution of music by himself and friends. The label released over 50 cassettes, several LPs, and a short-lived magazine.
After relocating from Colorado to Seattle, Jerman continued playing with local groups of improvisers and began giving solo performances where he improvised with mostly natural found objects, a practice he continues today. He founded the first animist orchestra dedicated to making larger scale works using natural object play. In 1999, Jerman moved to Cottonwood, AZ. He continues to investigate sound and recording in many forms including field recordings, the building of crude sound making devices, and the effects of age and other damage to analog tape. Jerman's 2014 Grants to Artists award funded recording and touring with Tim Barnes. Jerman continues to collaborate with Dave Knott in a band collectively known as The Yes, Well, and with Tim Barnes, with whom collaborated on an FCA-supported record released in 2015 (Erstwhile Records.) Other CDs and works are available on Anomalous Records, Semperflorens, and Trait Media Works."-Foundation for Contemporary Arts (http://www.foundationforcontemporaryarts.org/recipients/jeph-jerman)
