"Writhing Star" Archive N°3: NAVI

Updated: Apr 27, 2021

Our latest "Writhing Star" also happens to be one of the most recent additions to The Dream Kitchen—please join us in welcoming, N A V I !

Ambient & minimal: N A V I 's latest EP Dissect will, if you let it, get your attention, however quietly. Meditative piano echoes and sparse electro-percussion lure you into a wide open headspace. The slightest melodic shift or subtle addition of a new element seems monumental when you’re zoomed in this close.

Formed by the pair of Justin Huang Ford and Matthew Romerein, the Toronto duo produces modern chamber music for both live and studio. We suggest reading more about the method behind their highly conceptual work. This release in particular has been developed as a result of the study and transposition of visual art pieces created by Ruth Mora. Even after reading the write-up, their process is something I’m curious to learn more about.
