about

Sub Bus b/w Low Level Transit Movement came out of a series of experiments that involved myself responding in real time musically to my daily public transit commutes to and from my day job. These commutes which at the time of composing this material were abut 2 hours in length each way, sometimes a little longer. My process was simple, using either an iPad or an iPhone and one of many different iOS music making apps I would write one part of the tracks found in this 2 song single, responding in the moment on the bus or subway to how my commute was making me feel. Each track was written in a multi day process, drums, bass, synth melody or lead, percussion and so on. Once I got all parts written out I would use that as raw material to compose each track in my home studio, finally resulting in the single your listening to now. Thanks for listening, naw

Montreal ex-pat naw (Neil Wiernik) who currently calls Toronto his home, began composing electronic music in 1988 with explorations in audio art and experimental music. Neil’s interest in sound and technology has lead him to a continued questioning and refinement of audio tools and modes of production resulting in experimentation with altered instruments, modified devices, and custom software environments. Neil’s music could be described as warm, atmospheric,
and cinematic electronic music. The sound design of naw is firmly grounded in the rich traditions of dub studio culture but can also be weighed alongside formal contemporary composition. His music
was recently described in “The Wire” as having “…the kind of sharpness and clarity usually lost amid the murk and decay of clicks and cuts and digital delays.” Neil has released music on various labels
Noise Factory Records for his naw project and on Elevation Recordings for his most recent project Whisper Room. Sub Bus is his second release on the paper+sound label.
