about

Them There welcomes multi-instrumentalist Chris Ruffoni with his debut offering ’The Slope of Our Directions’. Slowly stepping out from hibernation, Chris brings seven tracks of playful, radiophonic psych-folk - rolled in moss and decorated with crispy autumn leaves. There's an antiquity to the pieces; a timeworn sound that seeps into the unconscious mind like a flicker of light through cracked wood.

Inspired by folk costumes like those photographed by Charles Freger. Chris sketches improvised, hypnagogic collages that explore his fascination with folk rituals and myths. Out of sync loops appear and disappear, shaping faux natural environments. The ambient scenes stagger and sway, resembling creaking, ancient structures, buzzing rainforests and gargling subaquatic worlds.

Sure to be the first of many solo works from Chris, this debut runs through with a hypnotic subtlety; an aleatoric uncertainty and a curious, high-spirited narrative that remains captivating throughout.
