RVNG Intl.’s Commend Releases Miho Hatori & Dave Harrington Tape
'Mondialité' captures a spontaneous performance from the two musicians.
Commend will release a performance from Miho Hatori & Dave Harrington via the Commend Here tape series.
Commend acts as the physical center of the RVNG universe and has played host to a number of unique and spontaneous performances within the walls of the store, which also features various products, records, and clothing. Over the last couple of years, RVNG has captured some of the performances and has begun sharing them via the limited-run Commend Tape series.
The first release in the series was a recording of Félicia Atkinson and Christina Vantzou’s collaborative performance Folded Galaxy, with Miho Hatori & Dave Harrington’s Mondialité representing the second release. Spread across two continuous sides, the driving downtempo performance is part of Hatori’s ongoing elaboration on philosopher Edouard Glissant’s theory of “globality,” an alternate form of global connection.
Mondialité is available exclusively via Commend as a limited-edition run of 35 hand-numbered cassettes.
