Humming, droning, rumbling, throbbing, vibrating-like, fizzing, all sounds listed as symptoms of acute anxiety, serve as apt descriptors for The Torrid Eye, the collaborative techno-ambient album from Stockholm’s Acronym and Kali Malone. Recorded using a Buchla 200 series modular synthesizer, and other rare analogue instruments brought in by Malone, The Torrid Eye reaches cinematic drone levels. This is crisis and endurance music, like the soundtrack to emergency-driven, long distance running. Yet Acronym, a techno producer, and Malone, an improvisational musician, achieve their own version of total calm in songs like Tempest of Joy, and A Sunspot, which we’re excited to premiere on Editorial today. The Torrid Eye is out on Swedish label Stilla Ton now. Listen below!
