This weekend we're featuring music from Desatero the premiere release on Spotted Peccary’s O3E imprint of the UK-based duo Northcore. "Some of the most original, intriguing, and experimental electronica being produced today. Creative partners Carl Gibbons and Jana Tillotson's Desatero takes its name from a Czech word meaning “a set of ten works.” Each of the ten compositions on the album is a distinct impressionistic soundscape with its own story and inspiration, reflecting the artistic vision and production style of the duo." I enjoyed every track of this album, which is very unusual. These "sound paintings combine electronic ambient, ethno-inspired, acoustic, and sometimes upbeat sources into a mystical and intriguing whole that should appeal to fans of Biosphere, Bat for Lashes, Pete Namlook, Peter Gabriel, and Air." I was also reminded of Tangerine Dream, one of Carl Gibbons childhood heroes, and Dead Can Dance. "One of the most fascinating elements of their music is the use of 'found sound' or the integration of non musical elements such as: footsteps crunching in the snow, birds singing, simulated hospital sounds, city hum from the 19th floor of a Bangkok hotel, various antique time pieces, and scientific recordings of the magnetic fields of Jupiter converted into sound, to name but a few." It's like ambient sounds taken to another level. Music from the brand new album Desatero, by Northcore. We'll post the playlist afterward. "Electronic music for the present world … and for the future individual."
