Petrichor – On Tides


Simon Stokes brings us 3 Tracks under his new Petrichor alias on Soma. The music is typified not only by the warm, evolving sound that is dominated by melodies and field recordings as much as it is by rhythms, but also by the retrospective methods by which they were recorded. Moving back to his hardware roots for this project, Stokes utilises his arsenal of analogue and digital synthesisers, drum machines, tape echoes and effects to create a sound that is not only warm and innovative, but also familiar and classic.
