y0t0 – nijisousakuPosted: March 16, 2013
Straight from New South Wales comes Charles Sage with his impressionistic y0t0 outfit. y0t0 follows the same hazy, woozy, synth-based path as 1991, except here more focus is put into dense, cosmic atmospherics, with space-related monologues weaved in between pulsing, ambiental soundscapes of analog synthesizer and guitars. Inspired by Blade Runner and Logan’s Run, y0t0 explores the thin border between human and machine and the ability to perceive emotions while surrounded by technology. Also, I can’t staring at that cover. Powerful!
