Xenharmonic bass music.
All tracks are written using the same tuning – 23 equal divisions of the octave – and prominently feature the Xen-Arts FMTS synthesizer developed by Jacky Ligon (as Xen-Arts).
2 downtempo electronic tracks and an epic 10 minute drum & bass tune. Featuring a collaboration with Bristletone.
It was an experiment to go back to 12edo for a while.
A study on combining odd-metered rhythms with xen melodies. Electronic jams with a definite experimental edge.
The EP expands on the style from Sevish’s 2010 album Golden Hour: alternate-universe harmonies and big scatterbrained beats.
Human Astronomy EP comes just as Sevish moves away to the UK midlands. “I always found my little patch of London to be inspiring. The landscape of the city has coloured my music.” Human Astronomy features Sevish’s last compositions in London; it is a “good bye, see you again soon” release. It’s also a “next time we meet I’ll have so much to show you” release.
Golden Hour marks Sevish’s introduction to the world of alternative tonality.
It is his first album to use microtonal scales exclusively.
