Picture a house constructed of glass, tucked away on a hillside, up a steep winding driveway. It’s only several miles from downtown LA, but far removed from the smog and celebrity. From this mountain repose, you can see the freeway buzzing in the distance. You’re aware of the sounds of the city clucking. But mostly, you feel the golden light permeating through the walls and hear the empyrean voices echoing within. This is Rapor.
Rapor is both the name of Active Child’s new EP and the appellation for the residence in which the music was created (“Ra” means sun. “Por” means house.) It’s where singer and multi-instrumentalist Pat Grossi found sanctuary, refuge, and inspiration in the wake of nearly two years of touring his wildly successful Vagrant Records debut, 2011’s You Are All That I See.
“Sometimes I’d spend a week alone at the house writing without leaving or having visitors. It was during those periods that I realized how important this space was to me personally and creatively,” says Grossi, whose celestial falsetto was initially cultivated in the Philadelphia Boys Choir. “It gave me a platform to sit on and reflect, and it surrounded me with a beauty that’s a key inspiration for my music.”
