Manipulant

About

Manipulant

The second Manipulant release mostly adheres to the blueprint of 2016’s Méthode de Narration.  The hypnotic rhythms, dark tones and vivid imagery are all present in “Eclectro” due 6.20.17.  This time though, he brings along some help. Italian Astrophysicist Dr. Fiorella Terenzi and England’s chilled trip-hop siren Stoneygate both join in with sterling contributions. The latter in the driving social commentary of “Run” and Dr. Terenzi, the Goddess of Acoustic Astronomy, vocal bombs her own tribute song in “Doctor, I Need Your Expertise”.  Additionally, “Methodical” comes dance floor ready, “Marshmallow Fabrik” harkens Kraftwerk and The Organist makes a twisted reappearance.  Once again, Manipulant manages to draw the listener inside his head, drag them through his thoughts and drop them into an empty room to contemplate what the hell just happened.
