ALITH BERNDARN – “CYCLES”

On “Cycles” the Hamburg-based musician and visual artist creates a track of intersecting rhythmic patterns and vocal chops to connect Big-Beat Electronica’s broad sonic palate to Downtempo’s sonorous groove and late-night reflective come down. “Cycles” fuses these in a way that feels expansive and broad while still very much tied to the solipsistic craft of …

ALASKAN TAPES – “VIEWS FROM SIXTEEN STORIES”

As a composer for film, the Toronto-based Brady Kendall pulls the ephemeral into light. While never pantomiming for the audience, Kendall’s scores act as emotional landmarks guiding us deeper into the subject’s inner landscape.
