Stop what you’re doing to listen game music going very wrong and very polytonal

2021 needs an anthem, and clearly, it's bitonal Nintendo Switch paused game racing music in chaotic dissonance. "Nothing's gonna stop me now."

Premiere: Dark Forces by The Allegorist plunges us into a gorgeously surreal, shamanistic future

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Artists,Scene | Fri 9 Apr 2021 11:29 am

It's the ultimate neo-futuristic concept album, complete with invented language for the lyrics ("Mondoneoh") and a protaganist known as Dragon Rider. But the music is exquisitely composed 21st-century cinematic electronics. Anna Jordan's The Allegorist has produced a fanciful opus for total immersion.

Iglooghost: Lei Line Eon review – enchanting electronic world-building

Delivered... Kitty Empire | Scene | Tue 6 Apr 2021 10:35 am

The young Dorset producer expands on the sonic assault of his debut with beauty, space and actual songs

Strange energies run through rural Dorset. Picking up on their irregular frequencies is 24-year-old producer Iglooghost, AKA Seamus Malliagh, a prolific laptop jockey whose latest output sounds a little like Boards of Canada remixed by PC Music. Ancient and hypermodern rub up against each other in his latest work, which also extends to detailed visuals; Iglooghost isn’t so much a musician as an overarching world-creator. His first album, 2017’s Neō Wax Bloom, supplied a sustained digital barrage; its ear-bleeding delights came with extensive lore whose complexity felt akin to that found in anime or gaming.

On Lei Line Eon, his second album, those shock-and-awe tendencies give way to more spaciousness and beauty – Big Protector is probably this album’s most eloquent and inviting portal. Elsewhere, keening violins lend a bittersweet timelessness to tracks that also draw heavily on trap and bass music. Iglooghost’s formerly punishing BPMs give way to atmospheres and tracks – such as Light Gutter, featuring a female vocalist called Lola – that might be mistaken for actual songs. This time around, the lore is, if anything, even more developed. There’s an entire website dedicated to the Glyph Institute, which seeks to document and “test-summon” the energy-beings – “hovering, drone-like organisms called Celles” – to which this music is tied.

Steve Davis and Kavus Torabi: ‘Can you spot which of us is the rock star?’

Delivered... Miranda Sawyer | Scene | Sun 4 Apr 2021 9:30 am

As bandmate of musician Torabi, ex-snooker champ Davis is these days more about modular synths than big breaks. Now the odd couple of psychedelia have written a memoir

Steve Davis is waving a modular synthesiser at me. He’s 10 minutes early for our scheduled chat, and his music-and-book-writing compadre, Kavus Torabi, hasn’t logged on to Zoom yet, so Davis is showing me his favourite toy: a synthesiser without a keyboard. There are a lot of knobs and switches, and holes where you slot in sound modules.

“It’s not lost on me that this is a bit of a blokey hobby,” he says cheerfully. “I was checking out online demos about how to use these synths and I ended up watching soldering. A bloke soldering modules. But there was nothing else to do, so I watched it for quite a bit.”

You’re really on the seat of your pants. I have absolutely no knowledge of playing a rehearsed piece of music

When I’m with Steve, I feel like I’m a decent guy. I like myself when I’m with Steve

Malcolm Cecil obituary

Delivered... Richard Williams | Scene | Fri 2 Apr 2021 6:50 pm

Musician whose championing of the synthesiser helped shape a new sound for Stevie Wonder in the early 1970s

When Stevie Wonder met Malcolm Cecil at a New York recording studio one May weekend in 1971, he was holding a copy of Zero Time, the album of electronic music that Cecil and Bob Margouleff had just released under the name of Tonto’s Expanding Head Band. A couple of weeks away from his 21st birthday, Wonder was looking for a way to establish his musical independence. Cecil invited him in, demonstrated the newly developed Moog synthesisers with which they were working, and began a relationship that would help transform Wonder, already a successful soul singer, into an international superstar.

Cecil, who has died aged 84, was an English musician who had once been the double bassist in the house band at Ronnie Scott’s club in London. But it was his other vocation, as a recording-studio technician, that took him to New York and a partnership with Margouleff, a sound-effects expert.

Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders, LSO: Promises review – extraordinary

Delivered... Kitty Empire | Scene | Sun 28 Mar 2021 9:00 am

(Luaka Bop)

Five years in the making, this breathtaking album transcends the genres each of its three collaborators bring to the table

Not strictly classical, jazz or ambient electronica, this one-track, nine-movement album embodies the highest, most etiolated aspects of all three disciplines. British artist Sam “Floating Points” Shepherd is the anchor here, an electronic free thinker with a neuroscience doctorate. He supplies recurring leitmotifs and Promises’s sense of gossamer, largely peaceable inquiry. Jazz legend Pharoah Sanders should need no introduction; in his first recordings for more than 10 years, the saxophonist mostly holds off the free skronk of some of his most famous recordings in favour of his other mode: deeply felt spiritual jazz interventions. (Sanders’s wordless vocals also add to the promise of Promises.) Halfway through, the forward-thinking London Symphony Orchestra strings turn up and the dappled otherworldliness enters a more cinematic and canonical phase, but hardly to the detriment of the piece overall, instead adding depth and weight. There is room here too for a highly sophisticated iteration of cosmic psychedelia, for drones and tiny rustles, for electronic birdsong and the audible thud of fingers on keys as the mood swings from succour to awe and back again many times. Recorded over the course of five years, this extraordinary collaboration deserves excellent speakers and a soft couch to catch the swooning listener.

With community radio and online features, the metaverse in China continues to be a conduit for community – and could serve as an example to people in the rest of the world in the post-pandemic world.

Neuroscience, the cosmos and trees: going deep with composer Hannah Peel

Delivered... Jude Rogers | Scene | Sat 20 Mar 2021 4:00 pm

From praise from Paul McCartney to writing music for Game of Thrones, the musician has had an extraordinary career so far. She discusses her next step - an album embracing the natural world through electronica

Paul McCartney knew Hannah Peel’s talent before the world did. He hands out pin-badges at every degree ceremony at Liverpool’s Institute for Performing Arts, which he co-founded, and where Peel studied music. In 2007, her graduation year, she’d been chosen to compose something to accompany each student walking on stage.

Peel had been advised to do a fanfare of trumpets, but refused; she wrote a minimalist miniature for vibraphone and marimba instead. “My principal hated it,” she says, laughing down the Zoom line. “But when I crossed the stage and shook Paul McCartney’s hand, he whispered in my ear, ‘I really like your music. Well done!’”

I grew up with a sense of transition, awareness that things are never stable. All that history that stays with you
