Memotone is the project of Bristol-based composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Will Yates. Three years after Collected Ideas On People, he released a new album. Invisible Ctities is out now via Diskotopia. He shared the official video for the track “Where Memory Is Traded“. It was directed by Matt Lyne.
Informed by the atmosphere of the Italo Calvino novel of the same name, the ten tracks on Invisible Cities mutably shimmer somewhere between neo-classical-leaning ambient, fourth-world new-age exotica, and post-krautrock OSTs. By intermixing the different timbres of live string and wind instruments with astute synthesizer touches and skittish drum machine strokes, Yates has created an organic and ethereal magnum opus in which a brooding but graceful energy is manipulated into a delicately interwoven narrative.
