NA Presents: Mass Praktikal Album Release Listening Party

  • Pete's Candy Store 709 Lorimer Street Brooklyn, NY, 11211 United States (map)

A trio of Alaina Ferris, Lacy Rose, and Matt Schlatter will open the show.

Not Art Records is proud to presents Mass Praktikal’s new album To plan is a luxury– to dream, a birthright. The album features thirteen original compositions produced and performed by Timothy C. Reece.

Acoustic drums and chaotic synthesized textures combine to form this mixtape-like collection. Rhythm takes center stage throughout the set, a poignant twist on the rhythm-serving-harmony paradigm. Deep acoustic and electronic grooves bubble in and out of the texture, moving through moments of repose and saturated intensity.

“The first and final tracks are called Dreams and Flux, because our life circumstances always start with a dream and end with change. Change is inevitable, but it’s just a mirror image of our dreams” says Reece. Throughout the album, Mass Praktikal explores the contrast between planning and dreaming, and the milestones one crosses along the way.

Tim Reece is a drummer, visual artist and poet. He recorded and performed with The Album Leaf from 2003 to 2010. His band, Via Satellite, features Drew Andrews and Scott Mercado.
