Live improvised performance at the Music Gallery.
SlowPitchSound’s performance was recorded during “MG Remixed” the finale for our 2015-16 season. Also on the bill were South Indian master drummer Trichy Sankaran and “spiritual raver” Tenderness. Befitting the theme of the concert which sought to reinterpret Music Gallery history, the set incorporates generous samples of the Music Gallery Editions label both in Slowpitchsond’s turntablism and prepared loops. Accompanied by collaborator/dance Libydo LIbydo and within a set designed by Diana Vandermeulen, it was a multi-disciplinary tour de force to end our season.

Buckle in tight and prepare yourself for a trip into the furthest corners of the universe. Venture deep into the newly discovered Snail Nebula. Led by one of the world's finest turntable manipulators your imagination will be elevated by original sounds.
"Emoralis makes for an otherworldly listen. Yet, the dreamy soundscapes and off-kilter beats never drift too far into space; they're gently tugged back by SlowPitch's subtle scratching, which glues all the wayward elements together beautifully."
"Interestingly, the usual signifiers of turntablism don't plainly assert themselves until the fourth track, “Lo - Fi - Sci,” where scratching and other manipulations convert disembodied voices and assorted other sounds into sonic wooze. Turntable-based effects surface even more dramatically during “Dream Time In Cryosleep” when a speaker's repeated “I consider myself a time traveler, actually” utterance turns into silly putty in Paterson's hands."
Limited Cassette SOLD OUT.
Dimly Lit Existence pulls you into a portal of expressive episodes. A saga filled with weightless dreamy dark skies and dank dubby rooms of paradise. This mostly instrumental affair evokes mysteries wrapped in lush atmospherics and futuristic crackle.
Orchestrating it all is SlowPitchSound (Cheldon Paterson) from his central post in Toronto, Canada. On this full length debut, SlowPitchSound displays well-crafted electronic rhythms thoroughly sprinkled with his skilled avante garde turntablist flair.
Guest features come by way of Pursuit Grooves rapping over the aggressively tasty anthem 'Organic Seed', the silky vocal stylings of Shikha on the beautiful and catchy 'Robotic Rein Cells' and France-based Linear Bells plays passionate synthesizers on 'Unfolding'.
Dimly Lit Existence is a musical narrative to be enjoyed from beginning to end. www.whatrules.net

Traveling through multiple layers of darkness to find the first sign. Ghost Fossil is textured, lush and enriched with level after level of unique turntable manipulations. A delight for the ears and designed to be a gateway for the mind and soul.
tablist.net : "complete with beats, scratches & layers & layers of sounds. Its a good listen all the way through. Recommended."

This album is available for free digitally. It is personal, honest and I put my heart and soul into it. With the help of your support I can take this thing I call “Scifi-turntablism” a little bit further. If you can, I encourage you to make a kind donation to Ghost Fossil. If not please simply support by sharing the music and sharing the idea....

"I am a fan of science fiction and this is my ode to it. The use of my turntable is heavily featured supported by beats and effects. All the track are mostly improvised with small additions. Listen closely because there a plenty of tiny textures and subtle scratching." - SlowPitchSound
