Anyone who has trouble keeping up with Johnny Jewel’s myriad projects, whether it’s with Glass Candy, Chromatics, Mirage or Desire, just got a helping hand. Jewel has produced a soundtrack to an imaginary film named Symmetry, which he describes as “a conceptual tangent” between all those outfits.
This meeting place for the Italians Do It Better acts comes at the back end of a successful year for Jewel, who had his profile considerably raised thanks to the Drive soundtrack. Here, on a mix that consists of 37 tracks and is nearly two hours in length, he reveals his most ambitious project to date.
The Symmetry soundtrack is available now via iTunes or in the Soundcloud clip below. Make sure you check out the extensive notes on the project. “The attention given to color & detail on these recordings is more graphic than musical,” reads the statement. “More visual than aural. With no flashy virtuosity to clutter the mood, the album’s pulse thrives on the empty pockets of space left in the wake of throbbing bass & the faint flicker of electro candlelight.” [via Disco Naivete]
