Spun Out Of Control releases its second tape by electronic musician and composer Bryce Miller, currently based in LA where he is writing the scores to two feature films.
Inspired by the synth soundtracks of the 80’s, as well as the sounds of current electronic and ambient music, comes ‘City Depths’, the soundtrack for an imaginary film.
Limited to 100 hand-numbered copies on split-colour translucent purple & ‘smoke’ cassette shell, City Depths was originally intended as the label’s debut release (hence the catalogue number SOS001), and comprises 14 tracks for synthesizer. Once again the striking, graphic J-card design is by artist Eric Adrian Lee (DeathWaltz/Mondo, Giallo Disco & Wil-Ru Records).
Composer Bryce Miller on ‘City Depths’:
“When walking or driving late at night there is a sense of uneasy stillness as the moon casts everything in darkness and shadow. Nearly everyone is asleep but through the silence you can hear the sounds of vehicles, machines, and people gentling humming in the distance. While peaceful on the surface there is a sense of uncertainty as our imaginations work to fill in details of what can’t be seen, often creating things not real.
This album seeks to capture this experience through ambient textures and pulsing beats, best experienced through headphones or car stereo, whilst exploring the night…”
