Clarity Cycles is a collaboration with Sturgeon Bay artist Jeremy Popelka. For this project, Popelka created a series of glass instruments inspired by the work of Harry Partch in mid-to-late 2018. These instruments were then played and recorded in Popelka’s glass studio by Jon Mueller using various drum, gong and cymbal mallets throughout late 2018 and early 2019.
Rhythmplex published Clarity Cycles as a limited edition cassette (100 copies) and digitally via Bandcamp.
Clarity Cycles was also released as a limited edition LP by Des Astres D’Or in the Netherlands.
