**UPDATE ON THE FEB 2021 WINTER STORMS**
The winter storm in Texas has been absolutely devastating in a way that I nor anyone in my family has ever seen. Now through February 21st, all sales from my Bandcamp catalogue will go to Austin Street Center’s inclement weather fund, which is working to provide food and shelter for Dallas’ homeless population at an incomparably dangerous time for the city’s most vulnerable people.
Following the “mesmerizing” (The Road to Sound), “hypnotic” (Lucid Culture) ambient-electronic debut album Compartments last fall, percussionist-composer Adam Holmes takes his solo project deeper into abstract realms.
In Compartments Remixes, four artists in the emerging niche of hybridized, synthesis-heavy composition – Phong Tran, Cassie Wieland, Brooks Frederickson, and Adam Cuthbert – were commissioned personally by Holmes and mastered by Grammy award-winning engineer Mike Tierney, each leave their unique stamps on each of the original tracks.
The resultant 21-minute EP transforms Holmes’ “immaculately finessed” (Musical America) recording stems into a kaleidoscopic offering, where flower pot strikes become juke-inflected beats, simple reverb becomes an ecosystem of dancing spectral melodies, and polyrhythmic woodblock lines disintegrate into intense, swirling storms.
Bonus Ableton Live Pack includes Max4Live instruments and sample packs designed by Brooks Frederickson and Adam Cuthbert which were used in the production of their remixes.
