Odori :: Gathering Lines EP (Enpeg)

Each piece tells a bittersweet story that mixes mysterious drones, wobbling bass and secluded moods in one fell swoop of electricity.

Odori 'Gathering Lines EP'

[Listen | Purchase] Gathering Lines collects cinematic orchestration and blends the entire process with interconnected, low-rolling emissions (leftfield-ambience, perhaps?). Frosted tones on tap, Odori quietly overlaps each modulation with segments of post-industrial spheres crossing over scattered signals; a recipe for cascading despair.

The emotive grooves of n5MD‘s digital-twin are ever present on this Enpeg outing as Odori steers the oscillations between minimum and maximum crunch. A subterranean pulse filled with instrumental strands pushes this extended player into experimental territory yet doesn’t cease to amaze upon repeated rotation. The growth of sound crafting from 2008’s Winter Of Artifice (a nerve center of medium-octane electronics and distant atmospheres) parallels the sound of Gathering Lines’ emotional epicenter. Each piece tells a bittersweet story that mixes mysterious drones, wobbling bass and secluded moods in one fell swoop of electricity.

Words ultimately fail to convey Gathering Lines‘ trajectory of sizzled electronics and smothered organic waves, and it is the cross-pollination of genres that allows this six-track manifesto to defy categorization. Letting these sonic interludes dwell upon your portable devices will easily compliment the more relaxed productions of imprints such as Ant-Zen/Hymen, Brume, and Tympanik Audio.

Gathering Lines is out now on Enpeg. [Listen | Purchase]

    odori is one of the most important unsung heroes of this genre. i’ve had the opportunity to work with her and not only is she an amazingly expressive keyboardist who writes intuitively with her hands, unlike most of us. Her method is pure inspiration, and doesn’t ever rely on the status quo to determine it’s manifestation. She’s also a very accomplished engineer. Buy her releases, the blood, sweat and tears she puts into every release comes through with unparalleled clarity, and it’s personal nature will stick with you long after you listen to it.
