Maki – Illustrations of Botany

Structure is mostly cast away to focus on the sounds of distortion itself while droning analog and digital machines drift between the layers. Noise and polyrhythms move in and out of focus, sometimes finding congruency but most often trading harmony at the margins. Percussion is shifted into forms that sound closer to churning water. Samples are denatured into their granular foundations and formed into new shapes. All of these elements evoke images of nature at dusk and the stark geography that captures their shadows. This is a soundtrack without a film.
