Lucy’s Self-Mythology Is Imminent

Self Mythology sees Lucy marshaling polyrhythmic patter, diaphanous drones and textured ambience to push the boundaries, with fusion and occlusion of Anatolian, African and Middle-Eastern chant and instrumentation.

Lucy's Self-Mythology Is Imminent

News from Stroboscopic Artefacts of their illustrious leader Lucy‘s forthcoming third album. Aptly titled Self-Mythology, it’s trailed as ‘a meditation upon the reciprocity between personal hopes and fears and collective dreams and nightmares,’ apparently referencing old legends and well-known fairy tales.

Since Luca Mortellaro launched the imprint in 2009, his star has risen to the point where he occupies a position in the Outer Limits techno firmament beside the likes of Speedy J, Marcel Dettmann and Peter Van Hoesen. At the same time, with a series of questing releases SA has provided platforms for new(cfXhin, Chevel) and under-the-radar artists (cf. DadubKen Karter) alike. As Lucy or Zeitgeber (with Speedy J), his Churches Schools And Guns (2014), Wordplay For Working Bees (2011), and Zeitgeber (2013) LPs have stood up well to the wear and tear of techno trends over the passage of a half-decade, repaying extended listening–unlike many techno artists who would stretch the Serious Listener’s interest with anything beyond 12”/EP length.

Self Mythology sees Lucy marshaling polyrhythmic patter, diaphanous drones and textured ambience to push the boundaries, with fusion and occlusion of Anatolian, African and Middle-Eastern chant and instrumentation. No clips yet, but sounds intriguing—due out on May 6 on Stroboscopic Artefacts.
