Event Cloak – Life StrategiesPosted: May 17, 2015
Grey is one of the most underrated and underappreciated colors on this planet. Despite its seeming dullness, it’s a greatly relaxing color that can really soothe, especially when combined with sunlight or the blue sky. Maybe that’s why brutalism was so widespread in the 1960’s and 70’s – so it could stand out agaisnt the the soot-stained evening gradients of endless urban sprawl. The abstract grey organic architecture also adorns the cover of Montreal native Nick Maturo’s newest album, Life Strategies, released under the Event Cloak moniker. While bearing a somewhat vaporwavey name, this Event Cloak release goes far beyond the trappings of the genre, instead becoming a series of crystalline, updated prog electronic new age dream somewhere between R Plus Seven and Epitaph.
