Yadayn is a solo project by Gowaart, guitarist in Zura Zaj and sample bricoleur in Gluem. Fingerpicking, continuous arpeggio’s, some looping here and there. He has two hands and a guitar; you have two ears and a brain; more is not needed. Think of James Blackshaw, Joaquin Rodrigo, Maurice Ravel, John Zorn, Gustavo Santaolalla,…

“Adem” is yadayn’s third album of composed material and fourth release overall since 2014. The music on this record was mostly composed and developed throughout the course of one quite eventful year, or was improvised during the recording sessions that wrapped up that year at a time of homecoming, when the dust of the year’s turmoil was finally settling down. The album is conceptualized as two related suites (an A-side and a B-side if you will), a continuous journey rather than a set of individual songs as postcards. In that sense it is compositionally closer to yadayn’s debut album “Vloed” (2014), though it is sonically very much related to the lo-fi explorations on “Pendel” (2015), while even a few of the drony, improvised sensibilities of “Naam” (2015) appear. As such, “Adem” is a logical continuation of yadayn’s musical trajectory, while at the same time being a moment of contemplation.

Limited edition of 150 hand numbered copies in recycled white kraft gatefold digisleeve with printed inserts.
Out of the bulk of material Yadayn wrote in the last few years he selected five longform compositions for guitars, flooded with notes, littered with arpeggio’s, sparsely populated by meaningful silence.
