Village Green's newest signing CUTS, composer and filmmaker Anthony Tombling Jr, is set to release music from his experimental film ‘EXIST’ for the first time. April 27th's dual release of EPs ‘EXIST 1’ & ‘EXIST 2’ will precede a debut album with us later in 2018.
“In 2012 I was involved in a car crash and the resulting shock manifested itself in experiencing sleep paralysis for the first time. I was inspired to try and recreate some of those experiences through music and film.
It made me view my approach to music in a different way, EXIST is a collection of those visions. With all CUTS material I try to take influence from the non-musical, for instance an abandoned space. There is a stillness with places that are in slow decay. I try to imagine what that would sound like.
In taking influence from things outside of music I feel my own music becomes less tied to comparison. As a composer working this way has been deeply cathartic.”
