“The sonic equivalent of enjoying a cigar in your leather-upholstered vintage car while hurtling down the autobahn. Unashamedly nostalgic for the polyrhythms of ’70s Berlin school, yet infused with contemporary drone sensibilities and lifted by soaring solo lines.”
- Milly Manet

Bucking the trend for setting up a complex generative modular synth patch and recording “one take, with no overdubs”, here each sound is patched, played, recorded, and torn down ready for the next one. Many layers are then painstakingly edited up into a coherent whole. On top of all this rides Andrew’s bass clarinet, processed, sometimes looped, but always adding a vibrant contrast to the churning machinery.

Though Andrew has put out many albums over the years, this is his first as simply “Andrew Ostler”, making this a particularly personal release, and one that reflects his own take on what electronic music can be in the third decade of the 21st century.
