Mosaic I is absolutely off the walls. The glitching and stunted rhythm feels like time is trying to catch up with itself.
Favorite track: Mosaic , AKA The Track I Made Like A Year Ago That Gave Me The Idea To Describe Shattertrance As A Mosaic Of Sound.
Following up a massive collection of experimental offerings through collective 7FORM and a several breakthrough albums in 2020, Valyri brings us their first mainline project of the year. Mosaic I is definitive in being an encompassing collection of concepts which they have been cultivating for the past several years.
A seamless amalgamation of accelerated glitch-pop, warped IDM, and collages of noise. An album that seeks to be a kaleidoscopic mosaic of cumulative sound design pursuits. From chaotic melodies through sensory overload, and fragmented trance rhythms, Mosaic becomes a complete deconstruction and reconstruction of sound through a multitude of different ideas and genres.
