A bridge between nature and musician is explored by Imka (Evidence of Yesterday) using MIDISprout technology and granular synthesis to capture and sonify the biodata of plants in this collection of micro-compositions unlike any other. A collaboration on equal grounds, plants are as much the composer as Imka in this array of live ambient performances, captured with the use case of MPC-style sampling close in mind.
Within Plant Music & Granular Performances, you’ll hear sounds processed through VHS tapes, space echo, analog reverb, and guitar pedal oddities for atmospheric warmth. Incoming signals from plants are massaged with custom Max For Live devices, patched by Imka himself. Long-form samples allow producers to interpret multi-section passages with a selective ear, while shorter loops cut to bar offer an approachable sampling experience with room for interpretation. Imka encourages these worlds of sound be slowed down, sped up, and rearranged to taste. Plant Music & Generative Performances is as imaginative as it is carefully crafted––truly a must-have for seekers of sounds previously unheard and forward-thinking.
