Product Description

Snowy Room was recorded by Nicole Thibault and Julian Patterson (both of Minimum Chips) with friend Robin Schmidt, in a working process similar to the cut and paste of the Beach Boys Smile.

Nicole and Julian recorded many small segments of music, with no idea how they were going to be eventually pieced together.

More than a year later, Robin handed them Snowy Room as a finished product. Their bite-sized ideas had been transformed into a beautiful, coherent album. Featuring the cut-up electro pop gem Leafy Shoe, the lazy and pensive Sometimes Awa and a series of engaging analogue synth sound collages.

With only one minute long addition newly recorded to introduce the CD, Snowy Room is a magical collaboration between two electronic whizkids and a mysterious auteur producer. Snowy Room exudes a cool, autumn charm.
