You Can Know Where the Bombs Fell by Flin van Hemmen (n/n 019)
In his third release on Neither/Nor Records, Flin van Hemmen pushes further into the world of post-production and sound processing. Treating recorded sound as a found object or as malleable clay with which he assembles and molds abstract shapes, Flin creates a distinctive language which feels at once intimate and enigmatic.
