MATT BACHMANN- Walking Preference ORD-43

Release date: May 10, 2019

Matt Bachmann (b. 1988, Chicago) is a musician/composer/songwriter based in New York. He’s collaborated as a bass plucker with Mega Bog, Hand Habits, Happy You, iji and Ed Askew and has crafted tunes under the monikers Big Eater, Pachanga and his own name. Bachmann’s debut Orindal Release, Unconditional Love, came out in 2018.

Walking Preference is Bachmann’s most recent collection of passionate instrumentals, expanding on the sound vs song work previously explored on earlier records. Recorded almost entirely on a Roland JX-3P, a Yamaha digital piano and a D.I. Guitar, Walking Preference inhabits an animated universe inspired by Miyazaki films and Nintendo fantasies — a world both natural and unreal. Air and space have been carefully manufactured. The playful drones and compositions within are full of bubbles and sharp turns while still adhering to the core tenants of Bachmann’s sound— that of beauty and space. Bachmann’s music is more sky than earth. Walking Preference zooms out.

Walking Preference is the second tape in Orindal's ongoing series of instrumental Unguided Meditation tapes following Robert Stillman's Portals.
