IDMF037: μ-metik - Paths

Imagine if someone took you to a perfectly relaxed environment where they could soothe your tensions and ease you into a relaxed and peaceful, meditative state. Just as you fall into a blissful slumber you suddenly wake up again, only you haven’t really woken up, you’re still unconscious, just lucid, unexpectedly thrown into a dream where the world around you is a giant computer and its various components make wonderful sounds that match the glitchy beats and the futuristic synths.


So imagine now that you are in these two different places. You walk through computer glitch city where everything is dark science fiction but you look to the sky and all you can see is the room where you sleep. In that room, the unconscious you can hear the birds singing outside. The unconscious you can hear rainfall, someone playing the piano, someone playing a guitar.


This is what μ-metik’s Paths feels like, being lost in a computer dream as the sleeping you feeds a subconscious stream of natural sounds down from the sky. Paths can’t easily be categorised to a single genre. The contrast of the acoustic instruments to the electronic glitches and synths creates a unique imagery. The recordings and gentle ambience next to the dark broody pulse of the music and a sound design all its own, μ-metik has hit on something that demands your attention.


Tracklist:
1) Path/01: Small Paths Towards Solitude
2) Path/02: Long Paths Towards Autonomy
3) Path/03: Unmeasurable Paths Towards Essence
4) Revealing
5) Fragment/01
6) Fragment/02
7) Juliette’s Whispers
8) There Is Just Us


Thanks
μ-metik would like to thank Freesound.org and all the people there involved, for being such an invaluable source of samples, and sound design inspiration.
A big thank you also goes to the people that supported me during the whole process: without their support, both musical and emotional, this project could have never been accomplished. Thanks.

Re: IDMf037: μ-metik - Paths **OUT NOW**

Got through about half of this on my way to work. Really beautiful. I wasn't even watching the track numbers...everything just flowed together so well...and when that beat finally comes together in like...I dunno track 2 or 3...<3

Really awesome work. The vibes are unreal!

I'm really glad it gives this sense of flowing. Really, thanks for taking the time to listen to this...

It's time well spent. The whole album certain has a more than average sense of cohesion. Really beautiful mixture of sound design and organic instruments. I love how often those glitchy sounds are just barely audible, kind of playing almost randomly in the background.

This is giving me some ideas for what I'm working on at the moment.

Probably more then some other comments I got, this strikes a deep chord. I would like to explain why, but I'm not emotionally capable of doing it right now. Sorry about that.

Honestly it's everything I had hoped it would be and so much more.

Sounds like a canned reply but it's true.

Re: IDMf037: μ-metik - Paths **OUT NOW**

When I made that last post I had only streamed the record while driving around in the car, well...

I just went out to my garage, opened the door half way, dimmed the lights, fired up the studio and listened through on my KRK's.

What a triumph this record is. The way the elements melt into one another and take you away to another reality is really what this record is all about. I love how the acoustic instruments and field data meld together in perfect harmony with impeccable sound design. The sounds have a way of creeping up on you but when they do they feel as if they were always there. I'm absolutely blown away by what you were able to do here.

There have been a few tracks that I have heard, as of late, that make me question the direction and method in my own electronic music production; this has done exactly that and then some.

Superbly phenomenal this is on all fronts.

I had my first pass through of this album yesterday and I'm very excited. I can't wait to get deeper into it with more listens, and coax out some of the subtlety and detail.
