Numeral is the project of Swiss drummer and producer Philippe Adam, known also for his work with bands as The Lugubrious and Faux Tales. He describes his solo project as “a sonic universe of rumbling sub-basses, clever audio design and, at times, gloomy and dystopian landscapes.”
We introduced him with the track “Sulasan“. His music is inspired by a great variety of artists, ranging from the concrete music of composers such as Pierre Schaeffer and Edgard Varèse to contemporary IDM and downtempo artists in the like of Jon Hopkins, Rival Consoles or even Four Tet. According to the press release, In his personal work prevail sometimes dark atmospheres, sometimes luminous melodies. An inclination to distort, disassemble, modify sounds with great attention to details: this is what gives numeral’s apocalyptic sound its full magnitude.
Numeral is the debut EP which will be out tomorrow. It includes a remix by Swiss-Canadian artist Camilla Sparksss, Today we have the pleasure to share the premiere of the full streaming. Listen below.
As for the visuals, numeral is surrounded by Swiss VJ artist Niculin Barandun, who fully designed a unique software generating images used in the music video of the track “sulasan” as well as in live shows of the Swiss producer, extending the live experience to a real audiovisual performance.
