Videogame developer Eddie Symons returns with his latest full length music project, “Invariant”. Building on an existing palette of glitchy percussion and melancholic sine waves, and adding in new elements and textures, this is an album pushing in multiple directions. Reflective of the current fractured electronic music scene, the album brings in influences from a variety of sources, tied together with warm washes of dreamlike synth tones and skewed hip hop beats.
“Invariant” follows on from his previous album “Where there was nothing” for the Highpoint Lowlife label, which was described as “Hauntingly beautiful” (Touch Magazine), “music for innocent dreamers” (Fact Magazine), and “easily the best Warp-sounding release not released by the Warp Records label” (AlmostCool.org).
Between albums he has contributed to a number of projects such as the soundtracks for graffiti documentary “Bomb It” and his own videogame “PowerUp Forever”, as well as releasing a 7 track EP “Yesterday, Tomorrow, Now”. He has also supplied remixes for artists as diverse as Fuck Off Machete and Fibla, and contributed to compilations, including the track “Temazepam” for Highpoint Lowlife’s farewell compilation.
Hope Still Remains
All I can do now is say goodbye
