Earlier this week, mop-headed techno titan Daniel Avery treated listener’s to a brand new 50 minute long ambient composition. Downloadable for free via electronic music site XLR8R, Visible Gravity is, Daniel says, “an ode to those early and quiet moments in a night where the strobe light is still only a hopeful glimmer beyond the horizon, a sign of the euphoria to follow.” Which basically means it’ll sound perfect when you’re trying to shake off the memories of the night just gone.
The deadly duo say that the concept arrived after an experiment with sound waves. “We began to ask ourselves how we could evolve the process of how we recorded the album cover further and bring this new world to life unlike the static images we have captured before,” say Matt&Dan. “This time we imported the mix into Ableton and used an Oscilloscope to view the waveforms. We then added various plug-ins which let us manipulate the frequencies which gave us a live visual representation in a totally new way to how we have created previous artworks.”
Detailed, granular, and beautiful, not many things have made us want to go out and get wrecked quite so much in recent years. A future chill-out classic has arrived.
