Life Time EP
TBR: 16th August
Iranian-American culture meets electronic music as Kamran Sadeghi returns under the familiar EMIT. Having just returned from promoting his Loss Less visual audio experience at the Musée de Louvre’s virtual event and the Fridman Gallery in New York City, EMIT once again arranged and crafted exquisite sound sculptures for us to explore. This new project does not disappoint, four beautifully produced experiences are hitting streaming sites and airwaves in just a few weeks. EMIT had the vision of reinventing nuance in communication, something we feel passionately about too. By giving us a product that requires deep empathic connection through music, it's bound to pop some corks.
The first track is Lonely Owns Me. It grinds into our presence on mysterious mechanics that ripple into rhythm. Extra synthesiser patterns stroke colours through the tapestry and bring segments to life. Gradual progress lifts the tempo on stilts of sunny radiance and evocative sonics. Layers of drum meet each other in dreamy conjunctions as twists of silken thread pin the waves to unique angles.
A quick splashy rhythm takes hold. Deep bass and raindrop like percussion rattle with snare and cymbal in tow. A frantic barrage of adjusted and neatly aligned beats spiral into the air as Data Love begins. A cut brings deep and resonant sounds that ride on a wave of mechanical industry that pounds in pulsations of kinetic energy. Rhythmic and non-melodious, the combination of unique and interesting beats flow in spacial unity as layers work to lift and breath life into the piece. A synthesiser rises with scale repeats that suddenly brings tune to the dance.
Quick runs of plucked notes span outwards in a funnel of sonic sparks. Strange and warped drums then collide with the layer, overpowering many of the notes with energetic and loud crashes and zaps. The mix balances out as bass penetrates with equalising power before the music expands into a mix of frantic rhythm and melodics. Wake Transition builds with gradual clarity, from excited and minimal introductions to spectral and multi-dimensional facias of music.
The final number begins with chimes like a church ringing in the morning. Peeling tones roll down a major scale as ethereal glitches scatter subtle focus behind. Effects and loops begin to repeat and overlay the tones while digital fills add spongy intrigue through tone and nostalgia. A harmony builds on the repeating synthetic bells that hum like violins. Layer upon layer rises in packages that form a growing sonic pressure. Inverse Theme pushes the feeling to its pinnacle with bursts of static and delicately positioned abstract compositions.
