For his latest album, Bristol resident Memotone takes influence from Italo Calvino's novel 'Invisible Cities'. Like the book, his music explores imagined and exaggerated landscapes through the lens of some elaborate, fourth-world dreamscape. Using a finely balanced blend of improvised instrumentation (clarinet being at the forefront) and programmed electronics, the album benefits from a ranging textural and tonal exploration, as if we were following Marco Polo on his journey to discover cities as yet unknown, passing the landmarks of dub, exotica and jazz en route.
