Passageways is John Daniel's most personal work to date. An ode to his childhood home - a secluded apartment complex in Cleveland that his parents managed - "Passageways" refer to the various connecting hallways running between rooms as much as it refers to the way the passing of time overtakes our perception of spaces that seemed to be endless corridors into discovery and imagination. Passageways is full of submerged melodies, gentle pulls of surging tonal shifts that arc, shimmer and fade into the dark purple hue of the album's shifting overtones. The album rides the line of decaying drones that recall the best of Basinski or Belong'sOctober Language.
John Daniel is a fixture in Chicago, IL's thriving experimental underground. Releasing records across a variety of formats on stalwart labels such as No Rent, Constellation Tatsu, Unifactor, Polar Seas Recordings, Perfect Wave, etc. Daniel's work has been regarded highly by the likes of Pitchfork's The Out Door, FACT Magazine, Consequence of Sound and was recently featured by Ryley Walker as notable Chicago artist in MOJO magazine along with Circuit des Yeux, Natural Information Society and ONO.
