Music: SunFalls – earth.speed.exit

The artist known as SunFalls refers to himself as a “sonic architect.” With that in mind, I tried to visualize what kind of structure this new piece could evoke, and what I kept coming back to was that massive moving skyscraper in Dubai, the one with 80 apartments that are pushed by the wind and therefore constantly changing the look of the building. This nine-and-a-half minute piece evolves in that same way, changing shape and mood over the course of its running time. From moody Pink Floydian synth drones to a sandpapery beat to a long Autechre-like gurgle.
