Hailing from the current analog electronic outfit FORMA, and the now distant band Bright, Mark Dwinell is on the verge of releasing his solo work Golden Ratio on Amsih Records. It captures his work just prior to forming FORMA, and is based on multi-tracked Farfisa sounds. From the description: “Golden Ratio incorporates both static pulsing drones and heavily arpeggiated passages, culminating in melodic lines that epitomize Dwinell’s unique musical vocabulary as developed over the last twenty years.” The vinyl album is now available for pre-order. While you are waiting, here’s “Ascend”:
Also available now for digital pre-order is the debut full-length from New York sonic experimentalist David Mason, aka Listening Center, entitled Cycles/Other Phenomena. A veteran of the Ghost Box Study Series, Mr. Mason takes us on an excursion into “the intersection of natural and synthesized processes”, using exclusively analog electronic instruments. I’m really looking forward to this one!
My Autumn Empire
I’ll close out today’s Orbitings with a visual trip following a young couple as they explore various locations around the city of Birmingham – all to the soundtrack of My Autumn Empire‘s “Andrew”. It makes me really miss England.
Have some Orbitings of your own? Feel free to post in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
