Strange CultureSublimed EP
The EP features 4-tracks all built around the classic arpeggiators and self-oscillating filters of two synth heavyweights going head to head: a customized Jupiter-4 meeting a seriously hot-rock-burned Jupiter-8.
“I set myself this challenge, well, limitation really – to make a themed EP of tracks all using the JP-4 arp, which I then expanded to include the JP-8 arp. I've been reading a lot of sci-fi too lately so the titles and general cosmic-ness are 'space' related in some way. I like Ian M. Banks' idea of advanced civilizations and/or species 'subliming' once the physical world leaves nothing remaining unachievable, basically leaving the known dimensions of space and time behind to take up residence in several higher dimensions. I'm fully aware we humans aren't quite there in that respect and are still rather primitively running around shooting ourselves but it's a nice idea to think of a world where we realise we are all one and the same and are therefore able to step back and focus on what's important rather than the squabbles, wars and petty day-to-day crap that seem to so belittle our rather amazing existence.”
