naw Climate Adaptive Capacity CD/DL (paplus12)

climate adaptive capacity is another foray into to the psyche of naw’s abstract interpretations
of the world we live in. As in the past naw draws in his continued inspiration of the sound ecology
of cities, places and spaces he encounters on a daily basis. For this album naw explores the
recent hot topic of climate change and the associated changes, more importantly the adaptations
surrounding these climate changes. Exploring both the planets and human adaptations from
simple observations of ground frost changes to more complex life style changes that are making
in order to continue living on earth to the more morbid thought of an earth that we can no
longer inhabit.
Montreal ex-pat naw (Neil Wiernik) who currently calls Toronto his home, began composing electronic music in 1988 with explorations in audio art and experimental music. Neil’s interest in sound and technology has lead him to a continued questioning and refinement of audio
tools and modes of production resulting in experimentation with altered instruments, modified
devices, and custom software environments. Neil’s music could be described as warm, atmospheric,
and cinematic electronic music. The sound design of naw is firmly grounded in the rich traditions of
dub studio culture but can also be weighed alongside formal contemporary composition. His music
was recently described in “The Wire” as having “…the kind of sharpness and clarity usually lost amid
the murk and decay of clicks and cuts and digital delays.” Neil has released music on various labels
Noise Factory Records for his naw project and on Elevation Recordings for his most recent project
Whisper Room. Climate Adaptive Capacity is his first release on the paper+sound label.
