Nightports is based on a simple but unbreakable rule of restriction: only sounds produced by the featured musician can be used.
Nothing else. But these sounds can be transformed, distorted, translated, reworked, processed and reprocessed, stretched, cut, ordered and reordered.
This forces them to explore those sounds thoroughly and inventively. And it maintains our focus on celebrating what’s particular about that musician and the sound they make.
Nightports is about amplifying the characteristics of the musician and their sounds. It’s about finding new sounds that nobody else can make. The result is that each version of the project is different, cohering only through that single self-imposed limitation.
