Pittsburgh’s {arsonist} creates a dialogue between digital chaos & elaborate acoustic melodies on the hypnagogic ambience of ‘Nod’

, 6 February 2020

{arsonist} is releasing LP Reality Structure via Cleveland’s Unifactor on February 27, with preview track ‘Nod’ premiering on AQNB today. The Pittsburgh-based artist has previously released remixes for Ice Eyes on Genot Centre, as well as a series of live recorded albums.

This song oscillates between hypnagogic ambience and granular textures evocative of Oneohtrix Point Never’s Replica. {arsonist} draws upon her experience as classically-trained musician within and between each track, often relegating time exclusively for elaborate melodies on the piano and violin. Reality Structure creates a hopeful dialogue between the familiar acoustic sonic of live instrumentation and the chaos of digital synthesis.**

{arsonist}’s Reality Structure is out via Cleveland’s Unifactor on February 27th, 2020.
