TUNE Sontag - Overwhelmed
Both tracks on the EP were performed, and mixed on a eurorack modular instrument. The inspiration for this approach came specifically while listening to Jimi Hendrix's 1983... (A Mermaid I Should Turn To Be). 'Overwhelmed' represents this instrument in a relatively early state where things first started to “click” and Sontag began to elevate above simple loops and patterns to cohesive arrangements. “The audio came out in a single stream through a stereo line and I was not able to go back and edit anything save for cutting and pasting two sections together like a tape machine” he comments. Colourful, textured and rich, ‘Overwhelmed’ is the work of a craftsman with instinctive musical gifts.
