[Streaming]: Amon Tobin – “Dark Jovian”
A cura di: Nicola Orlandino
A quasi quattro anni da ISAM, Amon Tobin torna a farsi sentire con nuovo materiale. Il 18 Aprile, per il Record Store Day, uscirà il nuovo ep intitolato Dark Jovian. E’ disponibile lo streaming della title-track dopo la quale vi riportiamo le parole del producer brasiliano sul suo nuovo lavoro.
“I made these tracks a year or two ago after binge-watching space exploration films. People have, from time to time, described things I’ve done as “scores for imaginary movies,” which has always irritated me, but on this occasion it’s sort of true.
Even so, what I was really trying to do was to interpret a sense of scale, like moving towards impossibly giant objects until they occupy your whole field of vision, planets turning, or even how it can feel just looking up at night.
I wanted it to pace very slowly, the way far off objects can seem still until you look away for a while and find they’ve shifted some distance when you look back. Tracks like Io work in that way; something changing gradually so you barely notice it, until at some point you no longer recognize it.
My musical influences are on my sleeve with this EP. Anyone who loves John Williams, Gerry Goldsmith or Gyorgy Ligeti will hopefully see what I’m drawing from, and how it then sits in an electronic context. Dark Jovian is a small personal project which is, nevertheless, dear to me: A one off indulgence into a genre that I love“.
