Feral Media are proud to present Microclimates, the latest release from Canberra artist Reuben Ingall.
Ingall makes music through an array of home-made software patches, iteratively mangling his guitar, voice and other sources to create lonely pop and glitchy, psychedelic soundscapes.
Following on from his most recent release Microwave Drone Ritual described by Ingall as “improvised drone / ambient / noise / soundscapes using a microwave + voice + meat pies + tomato sauce”; Microclimates is more akin to his beguiling 2012 release Dealt which focussed on sad guitar songs with glitchy manipulations.
The songs on Microclimates are at once intimate and sincere but also cloaked with a sense of detachment, as if the technology is interfering with the music; like a lost transmission floating in the ether.
It is music for a forlorn future from a unique and talented artist.
Written and performed by Reuben Ingall
