Hobo Cubes – Rapid GlowPosted: November 24, 2013
The Canadian city of Montreal is an unique melting pot of people, influences and styles resulting in one of the most interesting and colorful experimental scenes in modern electronic music. Among many knob twiddlers and synth wizards is Francesco de Gallo, more widely known as Hobo Cubes. Rapid Glow, released by the Montreal based label Jeunesse Cosmique, sees de Gallo at his more random and accidental, going on a rollercoaster ride of early analog synthesizers and the idea of musique concrete, warping the sounds and bending the surroundings at a whim. Not many beautiful melodies here, just some raw synthesis with its edges rounded for more listening pleasure.
