Recorded at INA GRM and Steamroom Piano: Eiko Ishibashi // Violin, viola: Atsuko Hatano // Trumpet: Eivind Lonning Cut by Andreas Kauffelt at Schnittstelle, Berlin, February 2020 Photo by Eiko Ishibashi // Sleeve design by Stephen O'Malley Special thanks to Francois Bonnet and Jean Schwarz for bookending 30 years Due to the wide dynamic levels, please adjust your volume accordingly Shutting Down Here is a special work. Symbolically, it covers a period of thirty years, between two visits by Jim O'Rourke to the GRM, the first, as a young man fascinated by the institution and his repertoire, the second, as an accomplished musician, influential and imbued with an aura of mystery. Shutting Down Here is a piece shaped like an universe, a heterogeneous world in which collides the multiple musical facets of Jim O'Rourke: instrumental writing, field recordings, electronic textures and cybernetic becomings, dynamic spaces, harmonic spaces, silent spans . This variety of approach, strangely, does not in any way weaken the coherence of the whole and this is the talent of Jim O'Rourke, a talent, properly speaking, of composition, where all the sound elements compete and participate to stakes that exceed them and of a common destiny, that is to say of an apparition. Released in association with Editions Mego. Coordination GRM: François Bonnet, Jules Négrier
 Executive Production: Peter Rehberg
