Rodrigo Coelho aka grassmass, founder of brazilian abstract label UIVO, debuts under a new alias cøelho, exploring more immersive realms of sound. Conceived as a full composition without instruments per se, Six Sines draws inspiration on the entanglement of basic entities that forms utterly complex structures, be in natural or artificial systems – chaos theory, Conway’s Game of Life, the ancient game of Go and the works of Feigenbaum and Mandelbrot are correlated.
By the intermodulation of simple blocks – a particular set of six resonant filters, sine waves prone to be folded by and influence its siblings – cøelho outputs a natural sounding, malleable tapestry. The smallest movement affects everything – Sensitive Dependence on Initial Conditions.
The album asks for an immersive listening, better absorbed from tip to toe, on headphones or big systems.
