about

The Tokyo based producer Vurado Bokoda presents his second full-length album, describing it as a specific, broody, loose, fake/exotic and melancholic species of anti-funk.

On a formal level, Jagged Orbit is an exercise in constraint, an attempt to reduce the electronic composition process to an absolute physical ethic. It was recorded stumblingly: with no MIDI, no quantization, no second takes, no compression, no 4/4 time signatures. Only external hardware was used, and an unfamiliar musical scale was learned for the purpose of each track. But it was also recorded swiftly: each track was completed without interruption and from start to finish, in the space of one single evening. The album was thus finished in ten consecutive evenings.

Conceptually, Jagged Orbit is an exercise in reflexivity, an inquiry into the oscillating states through which things arrive and are arrived at. Isolation, joy, lust, lunacy, aspiration, failure, depression, suspicion, observation, resistance, success, desperation: these are the shapes of reality, the glue that holds humans together. Even when stationary, our trajectories are fast and many…

“…a superb work, plotted with amazing skill, and showing a magnetic artistry…” - Philip K. Dick
