Roly Porter - Life Cycle of a Massive Star 12"
by Roly Porter
€14.99 / Sold Out
Two years after his landmark debut Aftertime, former Vex'd member Roly Porter presents his second full length LP, Life Cycle Of A Massive Star. The piece explores expansive scale and macroscopic processes through the thematic framework of the birth and death of a cosmic star system. The album is underpinned by a parallel investigation into the human response to this vast celestial order and its overarching dialogue with the infinitesimal lives we lead. The material considers the crucible of space as a poignant symbol of the brevity of existence and highlights humanity's part as both observers and participants in an endless cosmic cycle of creation and destruction.
Whilst the album continues on from Porter's previous work, through fractured eruptions and volcanic textures, it equally invokes a more historical mode of reflection. Enacting a distant remembrance of the history of electronic music and a dreamlike recollection of a Wagnerian landscape.
