Karl Steven, also known as a member of groups Queen Neptune, The Drab Doo-Riffs, Heart Attack Alley and Supergroove, has today shared a new song from his upcoming album, All Of Human Emotion On Microfiche, via Sunreturn. This is Freedom Bells:
Steven's upcoming output is a collage of organic and electronic sources, synthesised down into an ambitious and enigmatic sound.
"My intention with Freedom Bells was to make something a bit anthemic about freeing oneself from existing paradigms" says Steven. "In the process I tried to get away from the computer and plug things in, experiment, and whack stuff. I wanted to depart from using membranophones or sounds inspired by them (like kicks, snares, and toms) and try idiophones instead, so you'll hear there's lots of wood hitting wood and wool hitting metal!"
All Of Human Emotion On Microfiche is due for release later in 2021. The visual accompaniment for Freedom Bells was made by Mindfulness For Machines, generative art practise of Marcel Bellvé (Crap Date, Lipsink).
