music artist: Boris Acket
visual artist: Vincent Rang
album title: Home
label: De Lichting
release: March 12

Boris Acket’s first official solo offering home is a significant departure from his previous work. Up till now, his career has been marked by more cerebral project-oriented work, but this multi-chapter ambient album actually manifested from a very personal headspace.

Acket met visual artist Vincent Rang last year and in their mutual acquaintance, he found out Rang’s work had a lot in common with his own. Like with Acket’s use of field recordings, Rang works with materials he’s only able to control to a certain extent. By manipulating substance, color and placing, he’s essentially creating these living underwater paintings. These ‘aqua-ecosystems’ are nevertheless bound to the laws of physics, gravity and nature, which is precisely the point.
