Solvent Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Solvent mainly plays analog, but he selflessly ditched his IDM leanings for the soundtrack to 'I Dream Of Wires', a documentary about the darkside: modular synths. Four of the tracks he scored for the film are now being remixed on 'New Ways Remixed', by four of the artists in the film, in one of many ever-so-slightly meta things to happen to music this year. On the bill are Orphx, Bronze Teeth, Martial Canterel and Chris Carter, all doing their own thing on those synths that simply cannot be tamed.
This is the 6th full length album from Canada based synth botherer Solvent. The music was originally used as incidental music in the documentary I Dream Of Wires which explores the history of the modular synth. As you may expect the album excels at producing epic synth minimalism and headphone electronica. Previously on Ghostly International and Morr, Solvent has returned to his home label of Suction for this sure to be popular release.
