Floored Music is proud to present new, genre-defying music from Edinburgh-based sonic experimentalist The Reverse Engineer.
‘…a brilliant album of thoughtful, moody transitions & discovery’ (Monolith Cocktail). ‘…full of emotive, dancefloor-focused moments’ (The Skinny). ‘…beautiful’ (Nemone, BBC 6 Music), ‘…brilliant’ (Stuart Maconie, BBC 6 Music)
Elusive Geometry documents a period of transition, self-(re)discovery and moving on. The title refers to the nature of time and memory – the narratives we construct, cling to and ultimately discard. The album is composed from field recordings, sampled instruments, synthesis and algorithmic percussion and demonstrates how electronic music can be deeply emotive.
1 – Proto
2 – Would That You Were
3 – Insider
4 – Error Garden
5 – Decoherence
6 – Metastability
7 – Rhythmed
8 – Pellucid
9 – Post
The densely layered almost-chaos of Proto, Would That You Were and Decoherence speak of confusion and uncertainty. A steady return to equilibrium comes through in the more minimal vibes of Metastability, Rhythmed and Pellucid. The album closes with Post, a dreamy, ambient lilt with it’s final-second epiphany: “it’s so beautiful here”. The album features renowned harpist Esther Swift, BAFTA award-winning cellist Atzi Muramatsu, jazz vocalist Matty Eeles and multi-percussionist Pete Vilk.
The special edition features exclusive prints made in response to the music by photographer John House
