Composer is an album of rhythms that, once started, eventually completed themselves without much input from the Composer. The character of a rhythm can develop very with just a slightly different part of the hand hitting a drum, or the wrist getting tired, causing trembling and stuttering that further magnifies the rhythmic stability of the pattern and/ or player. This album was fun, exciting and unpredictable until the day it was finished. I hope this album encourages people to think for themselves. This isn’t a techno, experimental, abstract, dance, IDM, or any genre of album. I hope you know what I mean. I hope that music hasn’t lost the quality of inter-being beyond categorization.

Purportedly the final album recorded by Sun Araw associate Alex Gray under his D/P/I moniker, Composer was created using generative software that shreds samples and arranges them into abstract rhythms

Though Gray stressed Composer isn’t a ‘techno’, ‘experimental’, ‘abstract’, ‘dance’, ‘IDM’, or any ‘genre’ of album, it follows previous D/P/I releases such as the brittle M. OY (one of 2014’s best overlooked albums) and the YouTube-video sourced collage of ESPRESSO DIGITAL in exploring the ways human error intersects with the seeming perfection of electronic instruments.

As in a composer, here. A composer composing, Composing a composition. The composition, composed. In tears amid the alien porn Encrypted in the décor. Weirdo or weirdly obscure; perfect or perfectly bizarre. Powders, stocks, online flecks, city-sewer molds, all. Thru the hush as the looked-for sound clangs, Smudgy, thick, cold Like water with a hint of something gloppy - A quake of noun-blasts that. The composition can hybridize or disappear. It Gets with the times like not to have to not to say, Not to have to say, not to have to feel not like Not to have to have to feel the sumptuous. Wreckage at the edges of sensing, with no solution Between the non-real & the probable & The composer composing sound contamination, w/ embellished spoilage. A tear in the verbal fabric via. Palaces, multiracial architecture, palm trees, motors, As in to proceed or invent a procedure.

Gray himself hopes his album "can act as a beacon of creativity for future generations, who are currently being completely saturated by marketing content for products and media that will do nothing but confuse and distract them. 100% Secure Shopping.
