Influenced by the likes of Stimming, Plaid, and Ravel, the tracks feature a depth in detail, with layers on top of layers - without sounding too overcrowded.
Expect organic recordings as well as analog and digital sounds, relating to each other, conceiving an eclectic experience.
The opening track "Veronica's Tympani" reveals a catchy bassline and modern vocal editing, combining an elegant groove with a subtle drive.
"Message from Home" defines a broad range of textures, playfully interacting with each other, like raindrops touching the ground on a warm spring evening.
Sound design clearly stands out in "Dopple Ganger" - edited field recordings, as well as mystic vocals, create a gloomy atmosphere, with weight to microtones and detuned harmonies.
The finisher, "Fraction", rounds the EP with IDM-style percussions and fragile synthesis plateaus, radiating warmth throughout the frequency range.
All synthesis elements in "Fraction" come from the Cloud Generator, an open-source synthesiser developed by Wystup.
Give the tracks a close listen and dive into a sonic exploration which reaches beyond the standards of the four-to-the-floor formula, cascading streams of playfully but intelligently arranged elements.
Don't quiver, just cavort...
