Five Waves

Final single from replicr, 2019 streaming now.

When you really get down to it, everything is made from sine waves, right? We leaned into that idea for this song. Five Waves is a tidal push and pull of clean, fundamental frequencies and sculpted white noise beats. One of the earliest tracks from replicr, 2019, it started life as a ramshackle piece of generative software that stacked sine waves on top of each other in interesting combinations and then battered them against rhythms in 5/8 built from glitches and white noise, like waves at high tide hitting the rocks of a stormy shore. Or maybe it was the rhythms battering the sine waves. One of these things is the ocean, the other is the rocks. It's hard to know which is supposed to be which. Maybe both are both.
