Perila explores dust's poetic potential on new cassette for Motion Ward

Listen to some samples, and read Perila’s accompanying poem, below.

Sonic polyglot Perila caps a prolific year with a new release, Dust 22, on Los Angeles’ Motion Ward.

The cassette includes one 21-minute-long live take and three shorter tracks and comes accompanied by a thematically rich and elucidating poem from Perila.

“One day you feel
overwhelmed.
Then this pressure
dissolves and becomes
dust.
Intimate layers of what is
real and not resurface.
Dust dissolves in silence
emptying spaces for
change.
Sounds ripple and float
shaping forms which
disappear after hearing them
as if they were never there.
You were never here.
Slow drifts on a surface
of ephemeral reality.
Life is dust cruising
quietly in the mind of an observer.”

The cassette follows her most-recent Perila album Irer Dent on sferic and Year of Detachment for Klammklang made under her Aseptic Stir alias.

It’s Motion Ward’s third release this year following Brown Irvin’s Run Me That Soul.

Dust 22 arrives December 20 and is available for pre-order now. See the artwork by Sasha Zakharenko (Perila) and Jesse Sappell and tracklist below.
