Figurate "There Are Places Other Than Here" (bc023)
"There Are Places Other Than Here", the debut EP from Figurate, derives its subliminal influences from the farthest reaches of the neo noir/cyberpunk movie genres and evolves them into three conceptual works that overarch into themes of AI and character recognition. There's the odd minimalistic sample that helps to set the tone but it's mainly the sounds that create the overall mood. The music itself joins the dots between dub and glitch. While shoegaze effects and fragmented percussion work together with the dub and glitch styles over the course of the three tracks to assist in the construction of intriguing micro mechanical, chrome, ambient backdrops that provide the listener with some unique experimental panoramic dubscapes.
