Music from Snawklor and Jarrod Zladic
Snawklor is a long standing collaboration between utopian alumni Nathan Gray and Dylan Martorell, a blissed out synth-scape of found sounds, drones and fields that phase and pitch contorting into a hallucinogenic ecology. An analogue to both artists' visual work.
Jarrod Zladic (of Fabulous Diamonds and Oh Belgium) makes solo improvised keyboard pieces whose nearest point of reference would be Cluster or Terry Riley if it weren't so unique. Its nostalgic and futuristic at the same time. Complex phrasing keeps splitting from the central mass, time lagging and shedding skin after skin. Looping out of time with its self, tripping upwards. These pieces are infinitely dense but weightless, pure and resolute they express big things but in a concise unlaboured way.
