Texture First

A new piece by Portland-based Rawore

Rawore’s “Industrial Sands” is pure texture as foreground, a slow roil of granulated sound running at length — like a sour pipe organ heard through a veil of vinyl surface noise. It’s sound as fabric, to be enjoyed not for some pre-determined melodic procession but for slight variations playing out in realtime.
