As posted on our website/Facebook, next up is Lyon, France based Argentinian Ludmila with 1 Day 1 Track. This is an album of 7 tracks, with the artist (Jori Borla) having recorded for around 10-20 minutes for each day of his holiday. The tracks were then cut and mastered to be presented in a beautiful electro-acoustic/Ambient album that may appeal to fans of Hammock, Willamette or Shaula.

Whitelabrecs low-run releases will be made available suddenly without official release dates, meaning they’re likely to sell out fast. The best way to keep informed is to join our mailing list which can be located through our website menu.
“Ludmila is an artist named Jori Borla who currently resides in Lyon, France but originally from Salta, Argentina. To date, Jori has largely self-released his material and we’re pleased to be able to offer his debut of sorts on Whitelabrecs. Jori has experience performing in bands as well as playing instruments such as guitar, cello and bass however he began his project as Ludmila a couple of years ago, after the birth of his son. Typically he would perch upon an uncomfortable stool by his amplifier and experiment with spontaneous tape loops.
In ‘1 Day 1 Track’, Jori set about recording one track every day for a week in which he describes it as the ‘best holidays ever’. Each track on the album is a cropped section of a recording session that lasted from between 10 and 20 minutes, a process repeated each day. In one very peaceful week, Jori recalls playing free from thought, with the takes being improvised without the aid of a computer. Often when artists embark on the creative process, rules and pressure are applied and a lack of quality time devoted to one’s craft can breed frustration. By taking time out during his holidays for just a short period each day, the music flowed and a beautifully cohesive album was born.
Jori also states that 1 Day 1 Track has an additional loose concept which is about finding himself in other lands. This is reflected in the cover artwork as a distant image of an ill-equipped human being can be seen free-falling from high in the sky, towards the unknown ground beneath them.”
