SCRAMBLE + FATE
RELEASED: 24 JUNE 2016
'Scramble + Fate' is an album about loss and what might have been. Each track is a unique dance of gorgeous soundscapes, layered textures, violent rhythms and beautiful, longing melodies - some deliberate, some accidental.
Written and recorded in Will Larsen’s own recording studio, 'Scramble + Fate' utilises a broad palate of sounds and innovative instrumentation. Piano and electronics are combined with timpani, glockenspiel, vibraphone, tubular bells, tambourines, shakers, triangles, crotales and a massive labyrinth of drums, large and small. Each is used, not to create a cacophony of sound, but instead a particular mood, a distinctive timbre, often with the most delicate touch.

MUSIC WON'T SAVE YOU (Review | June 2016)
