Very excited to announce an exclusive premiere of Polypores – Sprites, from his upcoming cassette on Waxing Crescent. A cute and bubbling piece, with sliding envelopes and LFOs gliding over quantised scales and tempo, giving the track a distinctly ‘modular synth’ feel, with a clean and modern tone. Check it out now on our soundcloud:
In its overall mood, ‘Crystal Shop’ feels much lighter and more playful than his more intense long-form Gargantuan outing, released earlier this year via Frequency Domain.
Track names like Soft Energies and Dolphin Emoji, suggest a tongue-in-cheek response to the ‘new-age’ music tag, all too often misapplied by lazy journalists to new synthesised music that they can’t quite fit into the usual electronic genres.
To sum up, this is one of my favourite Polypores outings to date (and there has been many!), encompassing an adventurous approach to synthesis and freeform on-the-fly composition.
