Livonian producer Alex Tedesco shares album of percussive, experimental electronic music; listen to it below

Iribarren Parameter is a collection of music inspired by polyrhythmic and exploratory techno by Livonian producer Alex Tedesco recently uploaded to the producer’s Bandcamp account. The album’s nine tracks see Tedesco traversing various strands of experimental, heavily percussive electronic music and are well worth giving a listen, above.

“The album was made almost exclusively on an SP 404 by layering and processing conflicting drum break patterns,” says Tedesco. “I began to hear it as waves breaking, hence all the references to fluid dynamics. The only ‘real’ instrument used was a cheap old organ.” An iPhone app called Thicket also formed the source for some of the album’s sounds, with Tedesco surmising that “I suppose I have to admit that I was grasping at the coattails of Autechre, Tloatlon and Mbalax music.” Fans of the aforementioned then, this one is for you.
