Simple, abstract sounds. Shapes, movement, repetition. Warmth.
Ripples in timespace extend into the crevices of the subconscious, as textural layers drift through expanses of rhythmic colour.
Berlin-based Gwenan originates as a techno DJ, but explores darker shades of experimental music with a complementary vision. A keen ear has led her to craft an individual voice that draws just as much from the IDM and drum-focussed landscape as it does heady, trance-inducing synth music.
Her sound is captured by a dreamlike quality in which sonic undulations rise and fall through a psychosis of sequenced abstractions.
