Wound - Plasticene
The era of plastic. The ever flowing micro-pollutant, present everywhere. A silent witness to mankind's worst ideas.
Looking from the outside - in, at what some scientists call the era we live in - Plasticene.
Taking cues from the ambient originators, 'Plasticene' is an unassuming partner in the everyday. It is a mood piece for the overwhelming reality, sanding down the rough edges of days gone wrong. Guiding the listeners attention toward a muted emotional palette through soft, cascading bleeps and blops, everchanging loops of synthesizer trails, and tranquil field recordings.
Track titles focus on the absurd ideas of a world on the brink - raging against reason, chasing shareholder revenue at the cost of true, natural beauty of our worlds, those outer (even going as far as to poison our dreams of planetary exploration) and inner (where our internal lives are only a pretext for product consumption; our dopamine registers shot, eyes clouded).
One can look at 'Plasticene' as a soundtrack for an imaginary documentary, to be produced years in the future when (hopefully) we get our shit together, of a period when everything seemed so bleak.
