IUKY – “SONY DCR-TRV120”

I love projects like this. iuky, the Spanish electronic artist has mined a life’s worth of VHS tapes and created a beautifully experimental composition from snippets of voice and incidental sounds  from the tapes. Percussion, ambient tones, synths and vocal samples are drawn from foley sounds from the vhs tapes. The result is a deeply personal project, where the auteurs voice is embedded into the audio fingerprint of the composition. Diamond-cut beats and gauzy, warm synths are on full display here, making for rewarding repeated listens.
