Vorad Fils gives Sydney producer John Hassell (Seekae) the chance to explore the boundaries of sound and melody, and cross-pollinate rhythmic sensibility with the freedom of ambience. The eclectic mix of influences includes early 90s video games, 18th century gothic novels, as well as the music of Spinform, Chris Clark and Glenn Gould.
“I have been producing electronic music for more than four years now and I feel this project shows tremendous growth since I began, with still so much room to grow,’’ Hassell says. “I’ve been fascinated with the limitless potential of compositional software and its ability to alter sound so dramatically, often to the point where it is indistinguishable from its original form.” John Hassell – Vorad Fils
“One of the main concerns I had with this project was that I would hold back on ideas I felt were too risky. Luckily, I was able to express myself without restricting songs to a certain length or structure, and I take confidence in saying it is my most honest work to date.”
The Warmest Static is Hassell’s debut album as Vorad Fils and a fitting final instalment in Feral Media’s POWWOW new music series.
