ORBITALPATTERNS – “A HEART CAN BE A GHOST”

“A Heart Can Be a Ghost” by Orbitalpatterns is new work from the excellent Los Angeles based label Mystery Circles. Focusing on ambient and experimental compositions, this new work from Abdul Allums is an arresting exploration of memory, place and sound. Allums creates gently lapping loops and drones that seem to deteriorate under the weight of memories of childhood – the way we retroactively extract meaning from flashes of memories we had that seemed insignificant at the time. These loops are manipulated and accrue more sonic elements until “The Heart Can Be a Ghost” becomes an overwhelming and crushingly heavy. Fantastic work.
