Experimental electronica of unfathomable depth

If the outer layers of our mechanised world were peeled back, we would be faced with the vastness of Helm’s sonic universe. A peak behind the curtain would be terrifying: once we’d travelled beyond the rumble of machinery, a vast unfathomable depth would face us. And, with focus, you can feel the points where you loose grip on the everyday and submit to the machine, then into the hands of the cosmos. This is what Luke Younger, the London based experimental sound artist, is capable of. Originally conceived as a soundtrack to a dance performance, but abandoned due to the pandemic, the visceral tension of the bodies can be visualised, mapping the industrial echoes of our existence. When you do drift off into the unknown, you have nothing to fear, as we’re all space dust anyway.
