In a time, not far from now, a group of specialized processes work to optimize the spaces overlooked by the system's creators—the hypergrainer.
I hope you all have a had a fantastic summer (doing whatever possible safely during the pandemic). The autumn beacons—we are on the clock for a whirlwind of uncertainty in the remaining quarter of 2020. Until next time, buckle up and enjoy the remaining days of summer.
It's been pretty quiet on the spaces front as the world trudges along. While you were sleeping I quietly put out two more demo tracks Trinity and Ripley. These two could not be more different, yet still share the same sentient genes. Please check them out when you can, and share with friends.
It's a fairly quick listen, but as my first foray into [ahem, professional?] music production, I have to say it's been one hell of an undertaking, considering it's an evenings/weekend project. I implore you to take a peek at the narratives for each space while you listen, they're little future scenarios about some autonomous ocean cleanup robotics.
As always, thanks to everyone that started this little journey with me, encouraging me to make more music and get it out there. Please share the love with friends and family, or anyone else who you think would like my music.
The world keeps moving and it's hard to keep up if you're standing still—so I've been busy. While the work continues on the first Sentient Spaces EP, new spaces pop up every day that require attention, especially as I work through emergent themes in spatial computing. First of many I suppose is Dunham, a quick space I couldn't stop thinking about, so I created it. It's been dreamt, written, composed, mastered and now it awaits its final home on our beloved streaming services. Stay tuned in the following week.
SC / We are living in a strange and painful moment. It's hard to express how frustrating everything is without appearing to virtue signal, to exude privilege or sound selfish. I stand with those who are fighting for equality, those fighting to stop racism and oppression. Black lives matter—and any proceeds from this first endeavour will go to charities supporting the cause.
Welcome to Sentient Spaces /
This project is a manifestation of a person’s weird thoughts and deep desires to turn imagination into materialized escape. Music has always been an escape. To many, it’s a way to experience something artistic, others, it’s background noise. Sentient Spaces is both of those at once. It's a healthy dosage of melodramatic dark atmosphere, or a soundtrack for whatever peculiar things are rattling through your head.
Sentient Spaces are… spaces. It's an attempt to marry the practice of futures design with a soundtrack for science fiction. The spaces, each a song, all tell a future story—be it of robotics, artificial intelligence, or post-anthropological earth. Each space is provided a narrative as the artist sees it, but it's important as the listener to interpret the music whichever way moves you.
This first track, which I am overly excited for you to hear, is meant to place you deep, deep under water. It is accompanied by a quick narrative that aligns itself to the space. Dredger 7086-B Completes A Sweep Near The Hjort Trench is available on Apple Music and Spotify [and others].
Sentient Spaces is now online.
