Spectra is a journey. As for the previous Fervor EP, Hall delivers here an impressive work based on the concept of “surround”. Merging a daily practice of experimentation, the research on polyrhythms and syncopation, and the use of mathematical formulas connected with our world, Tom creates a vast environmental based music.
A world on its own, Spectra is the metabolization of all these data-like sources, resulting in a warm analog fresco of the complex personality of the composer. Dreamy lines resting on rich textures, echoes of musique concrète, quasi-pop harmonic progressions, hypnotic percussive dark patterns, and again, nervous micro-time structures and a strong sense of construction, with a predilection for circularity; all this makes Spectra pierce the boundaries of music genres, to equally express urge of experimentation and a high degree of accessibility.
