FON29 - Moments in Time
by The Carapace
format: MP3 | FLAC - date: January 3rd 2011
The Carapace is the freeform electronic music project of Joshua Colella; the producer behind the industrial hardcore project scrap.edx. The project was created in central Connecticut on Joshua's 30th birthday as a means of expressing perceived reality and a vehicle to imprint human experiences through sound.
In addition to utilizing heavily processed and manipulated field recordings as the foundation for the project's sonic landscapes, The Carapace also draws from the learned production techniques of IDM, glitch techno and cinematic post-production without marginalizing listeners into particular genre mindsets. The music of The Carapace places emphasis both on refined, technically sound production and creativity, thus enticing listeners to engage The Carapace both with the mind and body.
Fans of bands like HECQ, Totakeke, and Architect should take note. If dark dub-step inspired IDM is your thing, "Moments in Time." builds off of your favorite sound while taking you in whole new directions.
This album represents eight light-hearted aural expressions of various moments or periods in my life between 2009 and 2011. I created this project for one purpose. Using a field recorder, I captured organic audio from my environment. These recorded sounds became source material for this album's songs. Some of these sounds are audible, others are manipulated beyond identification. I wrote this music as a meditation to help ease the mind during times of change and complexity. I offer these songs to you in the hopes that they will relax you, help you reflect, and make you happy
