Night Melody / Articulation
Artist: Rival Consoles
Format: CD

More Info:

Lead track and album centrepiece 'Articulation' links the record back to the analogue fluidity and colour of 2016's Night Melody. The division of varying time signatures, intertwined with a complex structure of notes, creates an expression of a moving structure and conjures a dreamy, motorik energy. Ryan Lee West explains, "The title track is about articulation and playfulness with shape and time. It's structure is very machine-like, but I was really interested in how melody and sense of story could develop out of this, and it became an exploration of mathematical structures - patterns and shapes having a conversation. I love that something on paper can appear rigid and calculated, but then take on new meaning based on the context that surrounds it, or how it changes over time."
