D & the Compass, is named after the short and intelligent detective story from Jorge Luis Borges. As the short story is only 3 pages long, it somehow explained his music is not going to be talkative.
"To A Cat" by D & the Compass is the 3rd instalment from the "Music for Home" series curated by mü-nest label - a series that focuses on home-listening music that captures the mood and feelings of our daily life during this unprecedented period in pandemic. As someone who is very much used to produce works in the isolation tank, D & the Compass is taking his time during the pandemic to exploring new territory, while keeping his signature touches - one could say this is something of Autechre and Thelonious Monk, a combination that is not impossible.
EP's title "To A Cat" was taken from a short poem by Borges, as the EP is about a companion - an imaginary cat, during the isolation period at home. As the matter of fact, a Chemist by profession, D & the Compass is much more busier than usual in a time like this. However, in his humble 3 pieces which go slightly over 10 minutes, you can feel his sincere joy of being able to create.
This EP was mastered by Tokyo renowned mastering engineer / recording artist Chihei Hatakeyama.
