7FO – Moment (Selected Works 2012-2017)
We’re delighted to present the music video for Moment, taken from the forthcoming LP on Métron Records by Japanese producer 7FO. The limited edition 12”, with full colour printed inner sleeves, Moment (Selected Works 2012-2017) is available to pre-order now and will be released April 13 – you can purchase here. A digital release will come later.
It has long been a dream of mine to release other people’s music. Over a year ago I spoke to 7FO about producing a mixtape for our series after becoming infatuated with Water Falls Into A Blank, his 2016 cassette for RVNG International, and was excited when he sent me some of his older material. Over time we discussed the possibility of releasing some of the work and I am honoured and thrilled that we were able to bring together a number of tracks, old and new, for this exquisite new record. I could not have asked for a more beautiful first release for Métron.
This could not have happened without the help and support of Alan Briand, Jessica Goodchild and all the people who took the time to listen and critique the project as it evolved. A special thanks to Brandon Hocura & Séance Centre, without whom this project would not exist as it does today. And most importantly, 7FO, whose wondrous musical mind created each glorious moment.
The music video below was directed by Greek filmmaker and Métron collaborator George Kountouras. His gorgeous analog visuals, created by manipulating VHS signals, perfectly compliment 7FO’s strange yet sublime sonic palette.
