The Quiet Cabin Art

The Quiet Cabin (2018) blends elements of old-school hip-hop, ambient electronic, and contemporary jazz to create a vague, impressionistic tapestry of color. Desaturated blues, greens, and oranges swirl around each other, dancing on top of dark-gray drumbeats that meditate deep in the pocket of space between organic and synthetic sound. Where one texture fades, another brightens, the result an eclectic forest of unlikely variety; an ecosystem within a computer.
