Qasim Naqvi is a Pakistani-American experimental composer, better known for his owrk with Brooklyn-based trio Dawn of Midi. Back in 2019, he released his first solo full-length Teenages. Now he announced the release of a new EP titled Beta to be released as a limited edition on clear vinyl for Record Store Day 2020 on June 20th and digitally on July 3rd. We already shared “Matic”; “Onna at Pulse” is a new excerpt.
Meant as a sister release to last year’s six-part modular synth suite Teenages, Beta is a series of experiments chronicling Naqvi’s understanding of writing for this type of instrument and the growth of the instrument itself.
