Nikita Gale, SOME WEATHER (Heat), 2021
__

CIRCA:
You’ve titled this new work Some Weather, could you tell us a bit more about the title?

NIKITA GALE:
The project is really about grappling with the process of rendering and definition. I’m very interested in the ways that an abstract and ephemeral concept like weather becomes categorized and defined because I think that humans have a funny way of locking very complex things into definitions much to our own detriment. That failure of definition is something that feels very relevant to my interests in musical genres and the ways in which these fairly archaic and market driven modes of defining sound and performance are often as futile as trying to name a patch of fog. The name itself “SOME WEATHER” is very ambiguous and kind of elusive. “Some” doesn’t really give you any idea of how much, and weather is equally ambiguous.
