Escape Philosophy

Submitted by on July 13, 2009 – 9:33 am One Comment

Escape Philosophy is Matthew Davidson, currently living in Cambridge, MA. He’s right into modular synths and has produced multiple CD’s and sample libraries and his music can be heard on the airwaves of nationally-syndicated radio. He also works with Wendy Carlos, one of systhesis’ most notable figures.

Matthew has recently released a 22 minute EP done entirely (save for a couple of drum sounds) on modular synths. I know what you’re thinking, but no, it’s not abstract, minimal bleeps and bloops, sounding like someone put their sequencer and patch library on random-mode. This is honest-to-goodness music.

Matthew has sound design kung-fu skills that are enviable, and he has a way of putting it all together in a really musical way. Do yourself a favor and listen to all of the tracks, and then download them:

About the album artwork, he says:

The album art is based on a graphical representation of pi that recently appeared in a crop circle.

Beautiful.

Matthew is also the author of the very well written Stretta Procedure, one of my favorite synth blogs.
