Finnish producer Forces considers hybrid bioforms in the Anthropocene with the trembling polluted noise of Plastisphere 

, 9 March 2018

Forces is releasing debut album Plastisphere via Prague’s Genot Centre label on March 9, with an exclusive stream premiering on AQNB today. Accompanied by artwork and video by artist h5io the music conceptualises the state of our current plastic ecological era into the hybrid forms that have developed to adapt to these new human-made conditions.

The Finnish producer speculates on the sound of a sea polluted by plastic, where ecstatic trance climaxes have been shattered and disarmed by granular filters and processes. An almost-chaos of white noise, which is in fact meticulously rearranged into this breathless and stuttering final product, offers wave upon wave of interruption and dispersal. It’s an EDM ocean of what the press release calls “nominally inert but totally alien, omnipresent materials accumulating and dividing into microparticles until the always menacing collapse or revolution point.”**

Forces’ Plastisphere album is out via Prague’s Genot Centre on March 9, 2018.
