Steyoyoke Black’s sound scientist, Nick Devon, presents his brand new experiment brought to light in the form of these four original tracks, the “Innerverse” EP. Once again his journey through the infinite universe of tech-made sonorities finds a shiny path.
The title track “Innerverse” couldn’t have been named better as it seems to be an incursion through Nick’s laboured sound identity. A bright, sophisticated affair where a waterfall of carefully chosen elements slowly pours upon us until the moment we are completely surrounded by a misty soundscape where tension and peace of mind harmonically coexist.
The odyssey goes on, reaching slightly obscure lands as we see that trail of light fading away and get in to the world of “Sithian”, the second track. As darkness begins to take over, we reach a brake where synthetic brushstrokes gently caress our ears, just before we’re hardly hit by the lower frequencies, then the bass is in, lights are out and it’s all about the Techno pace.
Then you finally land on a binary territory where you’re invited to experience two equally powerful versions of the final track “Eternity”, which comes in regular and acid version. Nick steers some beautiful chord melodies as he discreetly conducts an impressive dramatic evolution that fades in and takes control of the mood. Organic-textured sounds meet technological ones in a beautiful arrangement that sends us to outer space.
Nick Devon tours us through his creatively free experimentations, providing legitimate sensations of moving across different environments, all due to his outstanding sound design and skilled construction of soundscapes.
