Tag Cloud is the solo project of artist Chris Videll. "Pattern Recognition" is his fourth proper release, and balances between composed pieces and an early 2017 improvisation.
Beginning in 2010 with experiments in field recordings, Videll has expanded his current sonic palette to include kit built electronics, analog and semi-modular synths, cheap keyboards, acoustic drone instruments and percussion. Always self- recorded, influences range broadly from
Krautrock, noise, and environmental acoustics to working within the experimental scene in Washington DC.
Chris steadily writes and performs as Tag Cloud while continuing collaborations with projects including BLK TAG with James S. Adams (BLK w/Bear, Stylus) and Zschwishenzug with Gary Rouzer and Phong Tran (Halo Valley, The Shouts from the Sea).
