EarthCry Enlightens Listeners Through His Modular Musical Realm
‘Sun Path’ is the latest solo album released by EarthCry— Anthony Thogmartin, Papadosio’s lyricist brainchild, producer, and guitarist. More than just a musical side project, Sun Path, is the second album in a progressive project dedicated to the fusion of experimental electronic music and an earth-minded movement. What’s truly unique about SunPath is Thogmartin’s exploration of the modular synthesizer. By manipulating the analog electric signal, it was possible to experiment and create vast organic and flowing sonic sounds. Representing Thogmartin’s own personal growth and journey to inspire, “sun path”, is a reference to the positional changes of the sun and solar energy that is emitted as our Earth rotates and orbits around the sun.
The sound of Sun Path can be described as visceral, soulful, and eclectic with a down-tempo mediterranean feel, catchy glitch-hop and funk elements, and seamless airy melodies. In addition to the electronic elements in the production of the album, Thogmartin, collaborated with a handful of musicians to incorporate indigenous instrumentation including flutes, djembes, tabla, and voiceover samples. Sun Path’s progressive and experimental union between electronic production via modular synths, and organic sounds through instrumentation and sampling is a truly a glimpse into the promising future and synthesis of music and technology.
EarthCry is performing in Denver at the MetLife Rooftop today, Monday evening August 8th. For more info click here.
