Two years after Persona, London-based producer Ryan Lee West aka Rival Consoles announced the release of a new album. Articulation is out on July 31st via Erased Tapes. It was conceived with a very visual way of thinking, unusual for the London musician and producer.
During the writing process Ryan drew structures, shapes and patterns by hand to try and find new ways of thinking about music, giving himself a way to problem-solve away from the computer. The album title references a piece by the avant-garde contemporary composer Györgi Ligeti, though not for its music, but for the non-traditional graphic score that accompanied it.
We already shared the title-track and “Vibrations on a String”; “Sudden Awarness of Now” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video below.
