The Infected Mass

The Infected Mass, Patton’s debut recording as Those Who Walk Way, is a haunted and profoundly emotive requiem of minimalist composition that combines ghostly strings and choral voices with musique concrète; melodic passages rise and fall amidst rumbling and sibilant drones sourced from humming and whispering voices and the sound of human blood flow, punctuated by cockpit voice recordings of airplanes in distress. Patton obsessively sculpts the recordings with erasure techniques, seeking liminal and transcendent horizons of sonic materiality through absence, subtraction, silence and collapsing structure. Co-produced with Paul Corley (Sigur Ros, Bjork) at The Greenhouse in Reykjavik and Andy Rudolph at Private Ear in Winnipeg, The Infected Mass will be released by Montréal-based label Constellation in March 2017, including a deluxe audiophile vinyl edition with extensive artwork commissioned from Royal Art Lodge of Winnipeg alumni Neil Farber and Micheal Dumontier.
