Lomond Campbell is a multi-instrumental artist who has recently been exploring the use of tape loops. This has led to a trilogy of albums around building music from tape loops and his upcoming album “Under This Hunger Moon We Fell” is the final instalment. The producer has created a fascinating style of industrial-manufactured electronica sounds with moments of humanity being caught in the act.
Of course, working from tapes means you have to have source material and for this Lomond went back to his album “Lost Loops” and deconstructed it back into loops again to resplice it in a new way. This meant that the album was created through a subtractive process which is highly unusual for music making. Each song started off with 140 tape loops before Campbell started removing loops to get sounds down to a streamlined process. With this, any fans of Lomond Campbell’s previous work can hear ghosts and imprints of his previous work popping up again but in an entirely new lifeform. Once back to a totally new starting position, he could then start building songs back up again.
“The Mountain And The Pendulum” is the lead single from the forthcoming album and showcases all of that subtract and rebuild effort. Enjoy the music video below, the single is out now. “Under The Hunger Moon We Fell” is out on the 4th of November. For more information on Lomond Campbell visit his website.
