Hmot aka Stanislav Sharifullin, sound artist from Siberia just released his new EP ‘Barricades’.
We found this EP beautifully crafted.
We liked how the tracks are unique yet interdependent. The textures created by using divergent sounds buried us somewhere in the depth of our consicousness. It’s interesting to see how sounds acquire even more power through their organization and as architects can built from scratch a whole multidimensional space..
We also liked how the color of this EP is playing back and forth with the notion of time. In one hand, by using modular synthesizers and creating minimal/techno soundscapes, the ep gets a futuristic appeal and on the other, the local sounds brought to the ep a degree of authenticity referencing the past..
