The track is taken from In a Paraventral Scale, the first chapter of a three-part album.
Lee Gamble releases his new EP, In a Paraventral Scale, this Friday. It marks the first instalment of a triptych – collectively called Flush Real Pharynx – from the sound designer, producer and UIQ label head.
Gamble has frequently folded ideas about memory and subjective experience into his work, from 2012’s Dutch Tvashar Plumes through to the Hyperdub-released Mnestic Pressure, which landed in 2017. The animating principle behind his new series is, according to the press release, to loosely explore “three stages of the Semioblitz – the aggressive onslaught of visual and sonic stimuli of contemporary cities and virtual spaces”.
Unsurprisingly, the visual for In a Paraventral Scale track In the Wreck Room is consistent with the theme of hyper-modernity and overstimulation. Animator Clifford Sage translates the maximalist sonics and club concrète into kinetic, fluent and tactile digital imagery. It’s today’s Crack Magazine premiere – watch it via the player above.
In a Paraventral Scale is released this Friday, 1 February, via Hyperdub.
