‘Soft Continuum’ is a kaleidoscope of contemporary electronics fractured by kosmische and new age music. The record began as both a tribute to and a movement with founding member, Ty Brinneman, who was diagnosed with mesothelioma at the end of 2018. Early sessions included every member who has ever been involved in the project while Ty performed electric bass, MIDI bass and electronics.
In communion with the decade past, the through-line in ‘Soft Continuum’ is a reimagining of Metavari’s debut full-length record from 2009, 'Be One of Us and Hear No Noise.' The conceptualized tracks are titled after the stages of a star’s rare “stellar rebirth;” Drift, Swell, Arc, Flux, Swarm, Collapse, Bloom. The writing is not without the nuances of Nathaniel's production—warm hardware devices, self-sampling, and warped textures—but 'Soft Continuum' pushes further the boundaries of the art. Brittle MIDI and material sound become a rhythmic spinal column for a work wrapped in notes from new age electronica and dark cinematic influences. At times manic in its dislocation of the linear song structure, but united from start to finish by the constraints of the process.
