Habitat is inspired by the drawings of Italian architect Ettore Sottsass, and each track represents a room in an imaginary building. They wrote it during the summer of 2020.
Across eight tracks, Kramer and Foerster layer, loop, and merge sonic textures and patterns into fluid blocks without the restraint of statics. African log drum, Bolivian chajchas, vibraphone, kalimba, and various other percussion instruments are processed, pitched, and filtered through modular synth and script-based sample cutting to form a collage of asynchronous layers. This result of this, we’re told, is a “vague intimacy,” and “a curious state of comfort in the unknown.”
