an album complied from pieces made over the last 5 years
features lots and lots of mutable (elements, braids, rings, ripples, warps, shruthi, tides, kinks, links, shelves, veils, blinds, clouds)
as well as lots of other synths, modular effects and instruments.
album promo blurb:
abandoned, the latest album from Zvuku, the alias of Irish ambient electro-acoustic artist Karl McGrath, is a body of work compiled over the last 5 years. Its 21 tracks fold in and out of drone, modern classical, noise and ambient.
Musical sources ranging from electro acoustic instrumentation of violin, piano and guitar to digital / analog synthetic engines and eurorack systems, are manipulated by a feedback network system of effects and modulation to move and form each piece. Fluctuating from the singular resonances of piano to cascading walls of reverberated noise, abandoned endeavors to retain the immediacy and sensitivity’s of the musican within the recording and manipulation processes.
