New Resource: Havens
New Resource is the latest new music outfit from composer/musician duo Samuel Carrick and Dale Schlaphoff. New Resource combines the modern sounds of electronic ambient music with elements drawn from the post-classical genre to create conceptual and emotional sonic landscapes
Havens is the second project from New Resource, rendering the contours of displacement in order to extricate a semblance of comfort and stability from entangled anxieties. Developed while Sam and Dale were on different continents, the project creates synthetic utopias in the consolation of climate anxiety, loneliness, and post-COVID unease, navigating digital venues and spaces as means of connection and creation. Visions of beaches, church bells, mountains, and cul-de-sacs are filtered through electronic musical tableaus, consolidating places of significance in light of Sam and Dale’s physical separation.
