As i was doing some research on some Binaural panning, we’ll talk more about this venture soon, I stumbled across a guy named Renzu. A experimental artist that also dabbles a bit in Ableton Live addons. In his about section, on his website, he states,
With everything I do, I try to illustrate fantasy worlds, abstract inner worlds, paint musical portraits of people and characters, or evoke a past that may or may not have existed.
Quite a powerful statement and a one that is strongly backed up. How? Well, Check out this example.
There’s quite a lot I’m liking about this track. Primarily, it’s the atmospheric layers that he’s put in. Not too much happens to open the track but that isn’t really relevant until a few listens. Which leads me nicely onto my next point, simplicity. The song doesn’t really have tons and tons of audio but I write this while listening to the song for the 3rd or 4th time today. (Don’t worry, I left enough of a gap for it not to be abusive replaying) and it’s still fresh and I’m still hearing new things that I didn’t before. A final element which I’m really loving is the cleanliness and the style of vocals. Very much of an Anime / Japanese influence, all that’s missing is a TV series to accompany it ;).
For me, the track is fairly inspirational. When looking at Sonic Kinect, I’m essentially trying to create a an alternative realm where sound is the medium carrying you into this new dimension. So to hear a piece of music that impresses me enough to write a blog, also inspires me to push harder on development.
This track is part of an album called ‘Robogirl in Love. A Free EP too so get it. I haven’t a chance to listen to it but I’m assuming it’s going to be fairly similar to what you’ve listen to above.
