Ambiguously titled Catalogue: 1-12, Vancouver musician Jonathan Scherk’s latest EP is a collection of soothing experimental sounds.
The uniting theme of the tracks is an absence of a regular beat, relying instead on a mixture of synthetic and naturalistic sounds. Disembodied vocals litter the background – whispering and muttering, and adding a haunting twist to the album.
Scherk is but one of many musicians joining the growing trend of experimental music, an avante-garde art form seeking to break away from decades-long musical conventions. Perhaps it can be said that Catalogue: 1-12 gives listeners a sneak peek to the sounds of the future.
If you’ve ever wanted to hear what the future sound could be like, then why not consider giving this EP a spot on your playlist?
