about

On Divider, Kodomo incorporates Electro, Downtempo, and Ambient genres, culminating in a sound that is cinematic as it is driving. The approaches have shifted too, with Child recording most of his own percussion sounds and leaving the sampling to exclusively textural elements. “As fun as it can be to use drums I’ve sampled in a track, it tends to lock the track in a particular direction. Recording and playing my own percussion sounds gave way to a myriad of unexpected ideas, and also allowed me to think about what I actually wanted in there.”

Divider is certainly varied — some acid infused beat-driven elements, fuller sounding textured ambient works, and displays an orchestral sensibility with the electronic elements, creating a dynamic sound throughout. The premier single, “Storm King” features a driving ambient techno remix from The Sight Below and is set to arrive May 19th. A follow up remix EP to Divider, featuring remixes by ANSTAM, Taylor Deupree, Kodacrome, Lumia, and Symbion Project is set to arrive later this summer.

The EP was recorded on and off from the end of 2015 to the end of 2016. Continually fascinated by happenstance within his synth filled studio, Kodomo setup his equipment in various ways with the aim to come up with unexpected results. On “Numbers”, a single monophonic synth and drum machine are used, creating an ever changing asynchronous sequence. The recorded material was then fed through software and hardware in his studio, creating dense layers upon which he would sculpt his arrangements.

The Divider EP will be released digitally, on a limited vinyl run of 100, and on a limited CD run of 80. It will also feature a special release, fully mixed in surround by Kasson Crooker of Symbion Project. The decision to mix and release it in surround came about from the collaborative work both artists have done. The intention was to explore the sonic possibilities inherent in the production, adding a whole new listening dimension to the songs.
