Denver based producer and sound artist offthesky (aka Jason Corder) is known for his reputable list of releases on Resting Bell, Rural Colours, SEM, Hibernate and Home Normal, among others. On this release offthesky embraces the idea of evolution in his artistic process by adopting a completely different approach from his regular methods. Using an old iPod touch as a tracking device and an iPad equipped with various noise and synth apps, Jason delivers two densely textural long-format ambient soundscapes recorded mostly from his time spent in various parks.
“lossless” is a rich twenty-one minute soundscape full of distorted gurgling melodies displaced against a thick grainy atmosphere of static and organic tonalities. Part noise and part ambient, offthesky produces grand waves of rough sonic beauty using eighty-three layers of outdoor recorded material. “RGBwaster” is a dark and hauntingly beautiful epic noise-scape with intense cavernous progressions.
