RELEASE INFO:

Tresor Records is proud to announce 333 Mirrors from Torus, the artist alias of Joeri Woudstra. Coupled with its catalogue number
333, it indicates the large-scale conceptual thoughts behind the record, typical of Woudstra's practice. As an artist, he sets out to
frame re-interpretable references that trigger some subconscious recognition in listeners, with no set way to interpret them but
leading to singular feelings and thought processes. The eect, a combination of static electronic sounds and looser field
recordings, speaks to each listener differently.

333 Mirrors is, in part, the continuation of a project called These Cars Do Not Exist, made with videographer Mark Prendergast during the
Covid-19 limbo. The live performed short film sold out selected popup cinemas in 2020 in a short sprint of shows. Two of the tracks on that
project, Sound of the Drums and Chroniko, are re-imagined on 333 Mirrors, emanating as versions created in live performances. Set to
be released as a single, Chroniko VIP will be accompanied by an enduring theme from that project, the three-winged bird, this time
deceased. On 333 Mirrors, in exploring the ambient, stretched sonic universe of this project more, Woudstra moves from these
three-winged birds to the phoenix, finding a rebirth on the b-side with tracks that inhabit a similar sound as Deep Mid, Torus's inclusion
on the recent Tresor 30 compilation. The sound of Torus places importance on the multi-faceted approach to sampling, pushing the
idea behind the practice beyond usual boundaries. How to break the unwritten rules? Woudstra looks within by resampling previous Torus
releases and reverse-engineering the sounds of the most revered pop and electronic musicians alive today, references that trigger
recognition, melancholy and nostalgia in the listener.

3000 Mirrors features a staccato arpeggiating rigid pattern, the sonic eect of standing in front of a strobe until it becomes the
anchor. Silence and interruption are used as a device to explore the physically uncomfortable, more the central compositional tool than
the disrupted harmonic structures. Woudstra has never stepped foot in Tresor, so when writing this record, an enduring question spoke to
him, what is Tresor when you have never been? How do you sample the essence of an unknown location? The closing track, Omnia, is the
sound of anticipation, where the rave beckons. This imagined industrial space is calling for you.
