Kadet’s most collaborative album release to date, Gradient Wake is slight shift in direction with many points of inspiration. Her background playing jazz guitar and listening to minimal composers is at the root, with particular influence by artists Chicago Underground Quartet, The Necks and Steve Reich. This album also reflects freshly formed, integrated relationships with the contributing musicians as well as her new family triad; spontaneous, improvised participation in which art and life mirror one another. A couple of the compositions on Gradient Wake were not only inspired by witnessing the birth of her son, they were also directly motivated by Kadet’s passion for the moving image; Distill, Quantum Tunneling and Fight or Flight were composed for videos by Kadet, Intervallic was composed for a Super 8 film by Paul Clipson and Rite of Passage was scored to a video by Krystof Pesek.
