Amazondotcom - Mirror River
SUBREAL is pleased to announce Amazondotcom’s first solo EP, Mirror River (SR001), as its debut release as a label. For this vivid and challenging new project, the Los Angeles-based producer and artist works with deep bass frequencies, ritualistic percussion and heavily processed sounds to evoke a shamanistic and alternate imaginary in a digital context.
Made during 2018, the artist describes her production process as a place where forms can be released free--her efforts were to bind herself to forces and flow, rather than genre and/or intent. Time was spent digitally processing a dizzying array of samples (birds, trees, people in crowds…) and synths to create the sounds that guide the tracks. She took inspiration from the shamanistic as devotional acts to the unseen, and as a space where potentially something incomprehensible could be born.
