MASS PRAKTIKAL, ELECTRONIC ALTER EGO OF RENOWNED DRUMMER TIMOTHY C. REECE, TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM MARCH 27

Album: To plan is a luxury– to dream, a birthright
Release Date: Monday, March 27th, 2017
Release Listening Party: April 8th, 7pm at Pete’s Candy Store, Brooklyn

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. The final mixing and mastering was provided by engineer extraordinaire, Kris Poulin.

Acoustic drums and chaotic synthesized textures combine to form this mixtape style collection. Rhythm takes center stage throughout the set, featuring Reece on drum set. 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 The Dream 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.
