Ben Glas - Superpositional Melodies [Room40 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via the long standing Australian staple that is Room40 on September 30th, 2k22 is "Superpositional Melodies", the latest album by Portland, OR based composer Ben Glas. With a total of eight tracks subsequently numbered "Superpositional Melodies I-VIII" rolled out over the course of roughly 43 minutes total playtime Glas explores the realm of psycho-acoustics and intertwined, sine-wave based drone minimalisms to an effect of real - or imagined ? - polyrhythmicity and multi-angledness, garnished with retrofuturist computational bleeps and a purist, somewhat outerworldly attitude which sees each and every composition hovering beyond and above our regular perception of space and time, beatless, monolithic and impenetrable in its singular, self-contained existence, yet reflective and shimmering like a holographic mirror and a canvas for each listeners individual imagination and interpretation. Is this just a contemporary take on Minimal Music or unlocking an entirely new layer of electronic music to be classified as MetaAmbient by future generations? Or is "Superpositional Melodies" as an album even beyond that? Go and find out.
