Jeremy Young

Jeremy Young is a composer and maker of concrète electronic tape music from Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. He is a member of the electroacoustic modern classical trio Sontag Shogun and the poetry_sound unit Cloud Circuit, among other roving projects. In 2021, Young released Amaro, a personal LP built around electroacoustic compositions and improvisations using oscillators and tape, organized in duet performances with multidisciplinary artists Pauline Kim Harris (String Noise), Ida Toninato, Markus Floats, Dolphin Midwives, Deanna Radford, Johannes Bergmark, filmmaker Tomonari Nishikawa, and legendary creative figure Vito Ricci. In 2022, August Tape Sketches, a collection of tape loop collage sketches for improvised solo guitar, was released by Belgium’s Meakusma label.
Here in Eupen, Young will perform new sketches for oscillators and tape culled from his forthcoming record, Cablcar (2025).



August Tape Sketches

Melancholy and heavily saturated guitar variations from Montreal-based concréte head Jeremy Young – like a meeting point between Godspeed You! Black Emperor and William Basinski.
With a background in electro-acoustic music and tape collage, Jeremy Young might not be the most obvious person to rustle up a personal set of moving lullabies and post-post-rock guitar sketches, but “August Tape Sketches” is exactly that – Young uses his well-honed concréte techniques to recontextualize the nostalgic guitar/tape loop ballad, and his treatments are effective and moving. Each track sounds less a unique piece of work than an attempt to unravel the formula, and as a whole the album plays like a set of memories, processed through distinct, unmistakable ferric vortexes.
If you wanted to know what Canadian post-rock interludes might sound like if they was treated with the same flair and attention to detail as Valerio Tricoli’s Revox-fuck’d output, “August Tape Sketches” is well worth a peep.

Jeremy Young ist ein Tape-Fundamentalist. Die Spulen hat er schon für Labels wie Phinery Tapes oder Moving Furniture aufgezogen, echte Adressen in einer Welt aus Loops und Lendenschurz-Ambient. Für Meakusma aus Belgien wabert das Tapedeck mit August Tape Sketches – neun Tracks, für die man sich auf dem vierteljährlichen Kongress für Nostalgie und Defätismus die Schläfen massiert. Young greift in die Klampfe, lässt Bänder wie Radios rauschen, loopt sich in den In-Between-Zustand, in den man fällt, wenn man im Rausch aus Versehen drei Packungen NeoCitran runterschüttet. Der Puls bewegt sich im ungesunden Bereich. Die Augen fallen zu. Irgendwann schläft man ein, um zwei Stunden später aus den ärgsten Fieberträumen hochzujagen – verschwitzt, das Bett ein Boot, geil!
