Arp, the mysteriously versatile and talented sound artist, released ZEBRA earlier this month. The album was a departure from his typical indietronica experiments. Spanning 11 tracks, the release covers everything from jazz fusion to progressive electronica. "Fluorescences," with its atmospheric marimba-like pings and fast paced percussion, is a definite highlight.
The one similarity I do see between this new sound and previous projects from Arp is the music's math rock quality. It's as if every instrument has its own time signature -- all fused together to form some other-worldly dance. Its textures could not be more eclectic and exciting. But thematically, it's quintessential Arp.
