Dane Law disrupts cerebral senses of space and sound on the algorithmic MIDI-pizzicato of ‘Delph’

, 16 April 2020

Dane Law is releasing album Algorithmic Music for Synthesized Strings on April 24 via Astral Plane Recordings, with preview track ‘Delph’ premiering on AQNB today. This record contains Dane Law’s latest iteration of disruptive MIDI-instrumentation algorithms — a style the London-based artist cultivated on 2017 record r.bit with Genot Centre and on United in Dance with Quantum Natives in 2016.

This track is admittedly somewhat disorienting. MIDI-pizzicatos duck between culminating swathes of reverb sentimental of Caterina Barbieri’s 2017 track ‘Scratches on the Readable Surface’. Palpating sub frequencies and timbres bewilder cerebral senses of space and sound. The artist categorically isolates and shifts around nuanced tones of stringed pizzicato. Between rapid cycles of algorithmic deconstruction and reformation, Dane Law creates a sonic assembly of “synthesized strings” that defies linear sequence.

Dane Law’s Algorithmic Music for Synthesized Strings is out April 24 on Astral Plane Recordings.
