ALBUM PREVIEW: soundcloud.com/io-sound/sets/io-008
*full details & reviews forthcoming 14 February at*:
Arriving on the particle winds of interstellar movement are the majestic and orchestral arrangements of Martijn Comes. Comes projects a mastery of space travel through sound, conjuring forth pulsating techno, cataclysmic IDM, and outer space ambience that is voluminous in its expanse. Each “field” is designed for a deeply immersive experience in other worlds. Full effects are felt when broadcasted at earth-shaking volume. Microscopic details unfold in the fractal geometry of Comes’ expressive composition. IO SOUND is honoured to present the transmissions of Martijn Comes from infinite spaces — and beyond.
