The inspiration behind NORTHERN (including its music, title and photography) comes from Deupree's recent relocation from the heart of urban activity in Brooklyn to the tranquility of the forest in upstate New York. Inspired by nature and the winter during which it was created, NORTHERN, like much of his recent work, explores Deupree's interest in stillness and a slowed sense of time. Through quiet textures, subtle movements, faint loops and echoes, it was his goal to create the type of music that comes naturally to him while also highlighting the input from his dramatic new surroundings. In contrast to the brazen repetition found on STIL., NORTHERN’s more ephemeral approach to Deupree's theme comes from looking at the stillness found outside of his studio windows: large, looming boulders, the softness of snow, and the hushed whisper of wind and fallen leaves; it is a world of countless tiny movements so active that an implied stillness results from the din it creates. A careful balance is kept through the layering of synthetic source tones of basic waveforms and long, drawn-out, fragile swells. NORTHERN is melodic, warm and introspective, forming a bed of sound that is simultaneously quiet and noisy, structured and unsettled, looping and chaotic. Deupree's relocation to a nearby area much like the one where he grew up spurred memories of those days of early musical playfulness. Thus, NORTHERN became highly personal and nostalgic while at the same time breaking into new territory for Deupree, echoing the changes in his personal life.
