A Hooded Warbler echoes through the empty streets. A ball bearing spins on a wooden table. A cat purrs on the bed. Bed Cat blends original field recordings with live instruments and grainy layers of microsounds into luscious loops and spellbinding beats.
“There was this softness blanketing the city during the onset of the pandemic” says Guinevere Q. “I’ve never heard anything like it before. It sounded almost post-apocalyptic. I had to capture it – each moment felt frozen, as if the air itself had crystallized into this sort of numbness.”
Bed Cat is an immersive experience into dreamy grooves and hypnotic beats. SUNQ debuts their original editing technique of deleting and layering tiny, surgical incisions into soundwaves. This creative process centers around the idea of subtraction. Cutting out little pieces of a long tone drone reveals intriguing rhythms.
Young Sun describes this musical philosophy. “It’s not what you add, it’s what you take away.”
Bed Cat is SUNQ’s 4th release. The duo has been recording and performing electronic rock / downtempo since 2017 and has been working with other San Francisco Bay Area musical projects since 2011. They play live instruments along with original beats. The award-winning musicians plan to resume touring again in the near future.
