Oliver Coates - Skins N Slime [RVNG Intl. 068 Promo]

Released via the ever active imprint that is RVNG Intl. on October 16th, 2k20 is "Skins N Slime", the latest conceptual album piece created by British cellist and producer Oliver Coates. Creating the distinct sound of the album by employing certain automated looper techniques which transform, alter and process the instruments organic sounds in a somewhat uncanny and alienated manner, like observing (Neo)Classical composition techniques through the sonic equivalent of frosted glass or experiencing a futuristic, AI-generated and slightly faulty, grainy holographic presentation generated from a heavily weathered data set - think: Princess Leia's holographic cry for help played back by R2D2 - the entire longplay piece, especially with its super cohesive five-part composition "Caregiver" as the albums major body of work taking up roughly 50% of its playtime a.k.a. the first half of "Skins N Slime" presents a new, thrilling take on the field of Modern Classical / Contemporary Classical music which will also resonate with experimental electronic music and Noize connaisseurs as well as even Shoegaze / Doom- & Post Metal and Sludge headz due to the powerful harmonic distortion and drama provided in tunes like  "Caregiver Part 5 (Money)" or "Reunification 2018" whilst enchanting followers of Nordic Folk and its mythology with beautiful tunes like the "Philomela Mutation" taken off of the soundtrack for Marianna Simnett's short film 'The Bird Game'. Well intredasting and surely outerworldly.
