Emancipator ‘Mountain of Memory’ Available for Pre-Order
Emancipator’s sixth studio album, ‘Mountain of Memory’, releases on April 03, 2020. Pre-Order available now.
Mountain of Memory’s 13 free-flowing tracks effortlessly encapsulate
his entire musical history without sounding forced or overly
complicated: Mid-tempo dance grooves, solid boom bap hip-hop beats and
calm, reflective tempos blend with electric and acoustic guitars,
classical violin, Persian dilruba, cimbaloms, finger snaps, symphonic
strings, bubbling water, Latin and African hand
drumming, music boxes, Baroque flutes and opera singers, who add unexpected vocal ornamentations to accent certain melodic phrases. Underlying it all, is the bed of sound Appling produces using electric pianos, ethereal synthesizer washes, processed and almost inaudible vocals, soothing ambient textures and the pulsing of an infinite heartbeat produced by electronic bass tones.
