Album premiere: Elephant’s Sky Swimming
Three years ago, Amelia Rivas and Christian Pinchbeck became a band and a couple almost simultaneously after meeting at a house party. Next week, the London duo will release its long-anticipated debut full-length. Music blog Obscure Sound described recent single “Shapeshifter” as sounding like it was “culled from a spy film in the early 70s, when the transition to color gave all films an odd sort of hypnotic glow.” Meanwhile, the band itself name-checks influences ranging from Everything But the Girl and Angelo Badalamenti to Arrested Development, Toro Y Moi and 60s producer Joe Meek.

Years - Bartholomäus Traubeck

A tree’s year rings are analysed for their strength, thickness and rate of growth. This data serves as basis for a generative process that outputs piano music. It is mapped to a scale which is again defined by the overall appearance of the wood (ranging from dark to light and from strong texture to light texture). The foundation for the music is certainly found in the defined ruleset of programming and hardware setup, but the data acquired from every tree interprets this ruleset very differently.”
