Julius Smack has one of the most beautiful voices and was one of the most amazing people I met during my time in Norway. Hailing from Los Angles, his creamy voice and use of electronic samples tickle the ears. For this single, he wanted to try using acoustic instruments mixed into his soundscape. Along with Elisabeth “Busy” Ganges of Telepathe we recorded organ, percussion, drums, clarinet, violin, flute, oboe and vocals with “intention of crafting an ambiguity between past and future sounds”.
This single was completed with funding and support from the Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger, Norway.
