As part of the practice behind Hélène Vogelsinger‘s modular synth compositions, the French singer and sound designer explores abandoned places and connects with their energies to create immersive and suspended moments. “I love the fact that they have layers of stories and histories, with different occupants, often crossing times, and always full of beautiful and melancholic poetry,” she says.
A glimpse into the way Giorgia Angiuli’s brain works. How she relates sound to color. How she studies paintings…Drawing inspiration from the overall mood and finding sounds in tiny details.

This is an album to start the year with. It is a single piece, just under 45 minutes in length, of dense, shuddering wave forms that track at a sedate pace and bring your pulse and your thoughts into alignment. The variations of the tones are so slow in their passing that your mind’s eye sees not only the shape of the waves, but the shape of the modulations within, warpy rivulets that take the overarching drones and apply to them accordion-like patterning, not to mention sheer layers that glide atop each other.Read more about Evver’s work at Disquiet…
My favorite track from my favorite album of 2019.
New Year, new EP on Bandcamp.
Four fairly minimal rhythm centric tracks, with heavy analog textures, and more melody than I’ve typically used (at least on tracks 2-4).
Stream or download it for free on Bandcamp.
The beats came easy on these tracks. I’ve gotten to a point where I’m comfortable sequencing rhythms. They’ve become less work and more expression.
Melody and arrangement can be laborious though. I don’t have the tools or the confidence.
That’s going to be my biggest area of focus before next year’s EP.
Chill beat. Started in a hippie’d out Boulder Creek AirBnB, after a hike in Big Basin State Park. Finished back home with some modular drone gated into chord-like things. Plus a little Genesis B. P-Orridge vocal sample – for luck.
