Using a sampler and percussion on Life Hacks Pike blurs the boundaries of where the sound is coming from “I’ve tried to keep the samples exclusively about my own drum sound, and tried to create a sense of musical ideas having multiple dimensions to them, a kind of musical conversation with myself while at the same time confounding the listener as to who is generating what.”
Distant Early Warning is due out on the Leaf label on the 30th of March 2018. You can find out more here.
