The fact that you can’t readily describe the music created by Portrait is a blessing in itself. The obvious can be boring. But it exists somewhere in-between the world’s of Techno, Cinemscope and breakbeats. Executed alongside the creative impulse of movement designer and choreographer Magnus Westwell the four pieces explore a sense of wonder and realisation that all may not be quite as it first appears. Perhaps best described as thought provocations each of the four tracks wrestles with atmospheric sound amid the pulse of electronic drums, which are not always that apparent. Either way this is highly immerse stuff.
Release: August 7 (on cassette and digital)
