escape art – process part 342


“And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually”

Working with electronic music is like sculpting with sand, where a digital sea constantly forms, samples, and reforms works in a selfless, oxidizing rust. I was happy to be able to make this mix in London and Berlin in February 2013, and experience firstly the sea of modern hybrid forms loosely gathered around a snare or kick.

Analogue camps drew lines with gigs and white labels – digital broke those barriers and then took the derivative. A beautiful, moral, and organic vastness of countless sound, forever regrowing, degrading, regenerating, refracting – like the milky way or a nautilus shell. I think it makes electronic music a pure art form – one most closely resembling nature in it’s aesthetics and movements. And to dive and swim in that deep end…it’s pure love.
