Since the release of his last studio record “Illume” in 2015, Minnesota-based composer Jacob Pavek filled the next few years fulfilling various milestones in his career. In 2016 he opened for Jóhann Jóhannsson, an idol of his, and created an Emmy-Nominated Soundtrack to the documentary “Hello Montevideo”--all the while writing compositions that make up his Junior 2019 release," NOME".
Rather than intentionally writing about specific subject matter, NOME is primarily Pavek reacting to certain feelings and moments in his life listening sub-consciously, whether it be rooted in a dream (2040), missing a loved one (True North) or the tragic social events of today’s age (Pulse). However, the album title “NOME” itself is meant for pure aesthetics rather than convey any subject matter directly. Here, the listener is free from bias and given room to create their own world from it. NOME will be out on Unperceived Records February 8th, 2019.
