Today SBTRKT announced the launch of his new musical project ‘Transitions’, a collection of six instrumentals written and produced over the past year that reference the creative process that led to his debut album.
“This is music written over the last year, whilst recording for my second album. Much of the music I released before my debut album was instrumental and I want to continue to share this side of the music I make. This series of tracks is titled TRANSITIONS. “
Each track is available to listen to on the Transitions website , a fully interactive website that has been designed by long term collaborator A Hidden Place (who is responsible for the design and manufacture of SBTRKT’s now trademark tribal mask) and PARTY, a renowned Japanese creative agency.
The Transitions series will be released through Young Turks on three individual 12” records. Each one will feature artwork and 2D Moiré animation by A Hidden Place. The action of removing the inner bag from its sleeve creates a unique visual effect which is replicated digitally by moving the mouse on the Transitions website.
The 6 individual tracks are available for download (in 320kbps, WAV & FLAC format) from transitions.sbtrkt.com.
