Client: Arc of Doves
Contractor: Quietus Recordings
Arc of Doves is the alias of Tetsuya Nakamura, a minimal dub and experimental producer who has been making music since the early 2k’s. I became acquainted with Tetsuya in 2008 after listening to several of his tracks online. Around that same time, my good friend Brock Van Wey, aka bvdub, had just recently launched his Quietus Recordings label and was actively seeking out possible artists to sign on for releases. I forwarded Tetsuya’s page to Brock for consideration and suffice it to say, Brock signed Tetsuya to Quietus Recordings where he released his debut album Impressions in 2009.
During that time, Brock relied heavily on mastering services from the very talented Vincent Kwok, but due to his schedule, Vincent was unable to take on the work. I was brought in to master the album on short notice but managed to do so over the span of three days.
You can listen to and purchase Impressions at Boomkat.
