CATHODE RAY TUBE - "The Void and Other Structures"
In space, no one can hear you groove. Or can they? Electronic artist Cathode Ray Tube drops another release of intense, beat-driven audio adventures. This time, CRT is shooting you into space to explore the vast unknown regions of our universe. Sounds like a dream come true, right?It would be, except a fleet of enemy alien ships is preparing to intercept your flight.
This release is fueled by energetic, high-powered beats, played over a backing track of wistful and airy soundscapes that lend a cold, vacuous atmosphere to the overall feeling. The track times average at over ten minutes each, which makes it very possible to get lost inside the sound. Although the music has a unifying theme, each piece lends its own individual narrative to the tale.
The balance of driving rhythms against ambient backdrops is what allows The Void and Other Structures to be a true listening experience, pulling us into the story and asking us what happens next. The variety of sounds, combined with the larger picture makes this release perfect for repeat plays. Recommended for interstate travel, study, or performing autopsies in a montage.
