KEVIN GAN YUEN
Uncloaked Infinite 10"
22.5
Utech Records 108 / USA / 2017
Uncloaked Infinite is the debut solo album from Oakland, California-based multi-disciplinarian Kevin Gan Yuen. This focused body of work examines the concept of the transitory in nature. Throughout the work, the cycles of life/death/rebirth shapeshift, arcing into alternative frameworks and branching toward both rift and sky. A document of the losses and victories of a personal era, the album faces the passage of life and seeks to distill it to blistering radiance. It contemplates and reimagines mortality. To wonder, to wander, and to renew is fundamental to the Uncloaked Infinite. The foundation of the album is a culmination of electric guitar sources and personal field recordings captured from the last decade across the varied landscapes and temperaments of California. This reserved material then underwent a lengthy process of transmutation, the result of which is as expansive as it is biting, as revelatory as it is arcane.
