about

The first full length album from up and coming Perth based sound-artist, Kynan Tan. Traversing a multiplicity of musical ground, raetina features glitchy beats, shimmering spectral harmonies and constantly shifting textures and employs a vast array of sound sources, from electronic glitches and noises to recorded instruments and field recordings, all of which have been processed and manipulated by Tan’s self-made computer programs.

A rhodes piano is diced up and reformed into a new rhythmic entity, modular synthesisers whiz and whir over the top of guitar chords and voices float hauntingly along an environment of sub-bass thumps and rapid glitches. The resulting eight carefully constructed tracks showcase Tan’s talent as a composer, creating an intensely atmospheric work that also concisely articulates the materials of 21st century digital music.
