    Visible Cloaks – Reassemblage

    While many artists in 2017 looked to the diamond-encrusted sound of new age electronica for influence, Visible Cloaks looked further afield to the relatively unexplored (at the time) sound of Japanese artists such as Hiroshi Yoshimura for inspiration. Reassemblage stands as an important relic of the Western undergrounds cross over into the musical - and at times mystical - landscapes of the Far East.

Visible Cloaks go deep with their second round of computerized atmospherics on the next level sonic escapism of Reassemblage.

Saving their up most high gloss gear for RVNG Intl. Visible Cloaks perfectly slots into the labels recent run of stellar entries from Suzanne Ciani, Hieroglyphic Being & Syrinx. Reassemblage resembles a cosmic collide of outer reaches through to inner exploration urban electronica and hi-def J-pop that perfectly walks a tightrope between ambient exotica and urban electronica.

Having sparked our interests with the self-titled debut back in 2015, and their incredible Fairlights, Mallets and Bamboo mixes, Visible Cloaks instantly rose to the top of the post-genre vanguard of artists creating miniature cities of sound that act as a sort of prism reflecting various strands of techno, electro & new age wizardry and shooting them back in a CMYK x 10,000 widescreen viewpoint. Joined in their mission by like-minded sound design scientists Motion Graphics, whose collaboration Terrazzo picks up where his ace Peter Zummo style 7" for Future Times left off. The marshmallow hydraulics of Valve, produced with Miyako Koda. Plus most tantalising of all, a surprise appearance from dip in the pool (fresh from that end of night classic for Music From Memory). Venturing solo, Visible Cloaks clock in with some lush arrangements in the form of the first thing in the morning chiptune wake up call of Wintergreen, the electronic listening music gone acoustic surface roll of Place. Through the dazzling winter wake up of Bloodstream. Reassemblage is like a self-completing audio puzzle, slowly unfolding before your ears and carefully treading a path towards completion.

On Reassemblage, Visible Cloaks forge a stand out sound from a very unique strand of the internet fed sound that started with James Ferraro's Far Side Virtual and is carried on through the work of Motion Graphics & LNS, yet with these guys at the controls has a spectacular digital disorientation that feels like it has been recorded ten years ahead of everything else that you may care to place it in with.

All of these influences, collaborations and instruments blend together to make a highly immersive listening experience that for those looking for reference points, think Bytes era Black Dog, Ssaliva & ADR for a field of what we are working with.
