Brisbane artist Errol Hoffman presents Splintered Time, the latest release under his Perfume Garden moniker.
Splintered Time finds Hoffman continuing his experiments with synth-heavy post-punk drawing on influences such as Cocteau Twins, Joy Division and the soundtrack composition of Vangelis, to modern artists such as Oneohtrix Point Never and Tim Hecker.
Composed using a variety of old Casio keyboards, counterbalanced with digital synths and underpinned by primitive drum beats drenched in delay and reverb; Hoffman has created an authentic and fully-formed sound which rests somewhere between the past and present.
A lo-fi soundtrack to an 80’s sci-fi film set in a future dystopia.
Music, production and design – Errol Hoffman
Mastering – James Plotkin
“it manages to conjure up powerfully emotive images of decaying cityscapes and solitary figures, all the while giving a sense of gloomy romanticism that makes everything seem like its as it should be. It’s the perfect soundtrack to enjoying your own post-apocalyptic fantasy on these long mid-winter nights.”– whothehell.net
