about

Orange Milk Split Series Vol. II

The Orange Milk Split Series pairs music from two or more contemporary artists working in similar fields or creating disparate sounds that compliment and enhance each other when experienced together.

///

Future Daughter is an audio/visual electronic group from Norway. Their piece Ekphrasis is comprised of "Solids", "Liquids", and "Gasses" which imagine aural textures for each physical state. "Liquids" and "Gasses" begin with variations on an arpeggio, the former surrounded by what sounds like crinkling cellphone, the latter with a clear and bubbling shimmer. "Solids" at first recalls a creaking door, but morphs into a heavier bass-centric composition that builds to a beautiful sustained climax.

Matthew Gantt is an electronic composer from NYC. His piece "Plastics" can also be read as an aural interpretation of varying textures, while incorporating more sampled material like flowing water and brief vocal flourishes that highlight each track. The eight minute closing piece, subtitled "Broadband Devotional", juxtaposes a mellow synth pad with vocals, electric guitar-like tones, low sub bass stabs, and more for a disorienting and satisfying experience. Matt has created a VR companion app to "Plastics" which can be downloaded here: gantt.works/plastics3D
