Artist : Antwerp
Title : Parallel Sphere
Cat. No: NP05
Release Date: 25/08/14
Built from thumping beats, sparse otherworldly instruments and eerie keys, ‘Parallel Sphere’ sounds like a perceptual jump back and forth over centuries, with cultures and sounds extrapolated from their own age and relocated somewhere else.
It’s diverse and pensive music, with each track defining an ambiguous dissimilarity, industrial vs. organic, and a disorienting relationship to time. 'Sleep talking people’ is a heaving piece of muddy and mechanized electronic might, an odd catchy track with calamitous power. ‘Kalj’ is particularly deep and delicate with a decided dark undertone throughout, while ‘Dissolving words’ sounds like a smoky mix of tumbled-down atmospheres and playfully twirling haze.
‘Parallel Sphere’ is Antwerp’s debut full length, an intriguing project that shows great ambition. A soundscape where notions of reality and socially constructed belief systems are challenged.
A physical product will be available from the Noise Praise shop shortly. The limited edition product will contain the album on a USB drive, enclosed inside a hand-made, bespoke and eco-friendly packaging designed by the artist. The idea behind the concept is to provide a stimulating, multi-sensory experience targeting hearing, sight, smell and touch.’
