Spectropol is pleased to announce the October 29 release of Elemental States, a new album by UK composer/sound artist Joe Evans.
As with his 2014 release on Spectropol (“Septimal”), Evans merges poetic and scientific ideas into compelling music that transcends its extramusical guides. In this case the “classical elements” are paired with the states of matter and prime numbers, the music realized with metallic pitch sources and juxtaposed field recordings for the first four tracks, and with synthesis in the fifth.
Elemental States is a mostly meditative experience, sonically rich and gently paced, yet full of surprises to the attentive listener. We’ve been blasting it nonstop at Spectropol headquarters! It will be available as a $7 download or $11 CDR (w/download) on 10/29. You can stream the first track at the bandcamp site or at soundcloud.
