Taylor Deupree

Sti.ll (Book + Music Download)

Label: Greyfade

Format: Book + Music Download

Genre: Experimental

Preorder: Release 22nd May, 2024

An elaborate, authoritative acoustic re-imagining of Deupree’s seminal electronic album Stil. (2002), Sti.ll is the result of a multi-year collaboration between Deupree and arranger/producer Joseph Branciforte to bring Deupree’s explorations of extreme repetition and stillness into the world of acoustic performance.

*100 copies limited edition* The second release in Greyfade’s innovative new FOLIO music release format—a 6.5 x 8” linen hardcover book with included digital music download—is Taylor Deupree’s Sti.ll. Meticulously reconstructed and scored by Branciforte for an ensemble of clarinet, vibraphone, cello, double bass, flute, guitar, and percussion, the album approaches the rhythmic, textural, and formal complexity of Deupree's original through purely acoustic means, transposing the digital repetition of Stil. into a distinctive chamber music setting.

Performed by an ensemble of notable New York creative musicians—Madison Greenstone, Ben Monder, Laura Cocks, Christopher Gross, and Sam Minaie—alongside Branciforte and Deupree themselves, Sti.ll brings the tactility and emphasis on imperfection characteristic of Deupree’s later albums to one of his most austere, process-based early works.

Greyfade’s FOLIO edition of Sti.ll features an introduction by Pitchfork’s Philip Sherburne, essays by Deupree, Branciforte, and Greenstone reflecting on the album’s conception and creation, a complete reproduction of Branciforte’s arrangements in full score, studio photography by Deupree, and digital downloads of both Sti.ll and the original Stil.—forming a comprehensive, completist’s guide to Deupree’s Stil. and its most recent transformations.
