Iglooghost brings more elements of traditional instrumentation to his latest EP “Clear Tamei” . On the track “New Vectors,” piano, vocal and violin recordings bring an organic feel to a production heavy sound. They are all warped to fit his skittish, unique style, which he continues to develop further on this EP.
It’s a sound that may not be for everyone. Iglooghost sits at the very forefront of modern computer music. In doing so, he often pushes the listener outside of what they expect from music. He reflects popular music through his clear vision, and in turn shows a direction it could go.
This has often been the case with popular music. Acts who push the current technology and methods of making music past the current conventions often influence its future. Pop takes these acts style and offers a slightly watered down consumer friendly version.
Time will tell if Iglooghost is looked back on as a taste maker, but for now he proves that there’s still fresh and new ideas in music as a whole, and we’re still only scratching the surface of the computer as an instrument.
