Weaving broad strokes of bassoon and strings through this glitched and warped electronic composition. “Aporia” by Kalamazoo, MI artist Samn Johnson is a deft and deeply textural track that creates strange, ghosts of sounds deep below the first casual listen. An unrelenting 4-4 beat is matched with sounds tuned in just-intonation so that all pitches match the harmonic series. When the track finally opens up and the bassoon and strings peek through, we get a deeper sense of the musicianship on display here.
