M GEDDES GENGRAS - Time Makes Nothing Happen
Cat. no: CDHAUSMO109
Release Date: 27th November 2020
Over the last decade, M. Geddes Gengras has released an enormous catalog of wide-ranging, synth-focused music in both solo and collaborative settings. He has participated in influential experimental groups like Sun Araw, Pocahaunted, Robedoor, and Akron/Family.
Time Makes Nothing Happen, Gengras’s second release with Hausu Mountain, pares down his expansive work into more compact pieces each with their own narrative sweep and palette of tones, beaming listeners between discrete biomes at a rapid clip. Gengras employs distinctly harmonic voices as agents of forward motion and rhythmic consistency, creating pockets of groove out of chiming synth figures and steady yet constantly shifting basslines.
The attention to detail that he brings to the treatment of each element results in mutating spreads where a half-dozen or more synth voices might pop into view at any given moment, recurring and draping over each other into unforeseen permutations both on
and off the underlying grid.
