about

The master of texture returns with EP Ritual Music, embracing his jazz and improvisation background as a drummer to blend club sensibilities with rhythms and instrumentation from various traditions around the world.

From producer/instrumentalist Port: “This record is an exploration of ‘rituals’ of all kinds: spiritual, emotional and physical. I was inspired by pagan rituals, spiritual jazz and the cosmic electronic sounds from the 60’s & 70’s, particularly the early combinations of modular synths and jazz. I’ve retained the club music elements of my previous music but also drew from my jazz studies to inform the compositional process for this record. Terry Riley was particularly influential when it comes to the layering of repetitive rhythmic phrases and his approach to harmony. I really wanted to get a more natural free flowing feel into this music, particularly when it comes to the rhythm. I included a lot of my own live drumming on these tracks, as well as a lot of unquantized improvisation. This record stands as a kind of proof of concept for a lot of ideas I’ve had in mind since I started making my own music.”
