After dropping his third album Ruinism in June this year (featuring startling visuals courtesy of Marielle Tepper and Hirad Sab) Lapalux returns with fresh new music in the form of The End Of Industry EP on Flying Lotus’ label Brainfeeder .
“The premise of this EP was to make something that resembled the current automated world we’re now living in,” he explains. “Computerised machines are now taking over a vast majority of industrial tasks and this EP is a window into that transitioning world.”
The EP’s auditory soundscape comes from, proportionately, self-modulating and self-productive modular blotches and from played in, recorded motifs and composition as well as substantial editing. “Having this human touch and adding a human aesthetic shows that human interaction is still necessary in the process of creation and manipulation,” Lapalux explains. “This EP is my take on the idea of the Human vs the Machine.”
