RELEASE DATE: March 13, 2018
Jadelain is a Queens-based musician and producer channeling environmental and ambient music through mystical melodies and collected memories. Unravel, Jadelain’s first collection of original compositions for Atlantic Rhythms, uniquely and expertly weaves disparate influences from video game music; the company of familiar ghosts; percussive club music; as well as years of studying upright bass and jazz performance. It’s a sound of singularity - one of humanity and technology - bursting as one with heart, melancholy, and playfulness.
Everything on Unravel is written, recorded, and produced in a program called Guitar Pro, a type of notation software favored by metal bands, of which they started using at age 14. Growing beyond early experiments with the software’s use in their screamo projects, Jadelain found working with the program’s MIDI sounds and workflow evolved into percussive compositions more in common with ambient and textural sounds. For years now, Jadelain has used the program, perfecting the unconventional approach as both a composition and performance tool.
Unravel is the tenth release on Atlantic Rhythms, and will be released as a limited edition cassette tape (only 100 physical copies with digital download code), as well as a full-sized, hand-screened poster. The tape, poster, and digital versions of the album will be available exclusively at the Atlantic Rhyhtms Bandcamp website on March 13, 2018.
