Karmelloz - Silicon Forest


Silicon Forest

Cleaning Tapes

Released: 2nd February 2015 | 8 track leftfield/idm ep

Silicon Forest is Karmelloz' debut on Cleaning Tapes following a handful of acclaimed releases on cult label 1080p and takes its name from the real Silcon Forest of the Pacific Northwest: Silicon Forest is a nickname for the cluster of high-tech companies located in the Portland metropolitan area in the U.S. state of Oregon, and most frequently refers to the industrial corridor between Beaverton and Hillsboro in northwest Oregon. Karmelloz attends theUniversity of Oregon studying psychology and neuroscienceand his music is often conceptually inspired by his studies, new technologies and the ways by which art, music, digital and consumer culture meld and mutate reciprocally.

The sound of the album is a refined vision of various dance genres; jungle, footwork, house, new age and experimental hip hop meshed with sound design created with experimental software Kyma X, found sound and unconventional recording techniques.

Proving as corporeal and gesticular as it is cerebral and conceptual Silcon Forest at times wouldn't go amiss blaring out high tech nightclub sound systems and on the other end of the spectrum trickling out low bit from YouTube into the weedy haze of a monitor lit bedroom.
