    Intricate Connections Formed Without Touch mantiene una estética que es decididamente híbrida: una mezcla de paletas sonoras orgánicas y digitales, fiel a sus influencias experimentales y al mismo tiempo que abarca enfoques armónicos, melódicos y rítmicos.

Crítica

RNE3: Atmósfera, May 5, 2019

Adam Basanta es un artista visual, compositor e intérprete de música experimental, que trabaja en diferentes disciplinas. Su producción artística incluye instalaciones, escultura, obras de cámara instrumentales y música electrónica.

Adam Basanta explora un espectro tímbrico y estilístico que emerge de una sola improvisación de guitarra acústica en su última entrega Intricate Connections Formed Without Touch.

A través de seis pistas y un remix, los sonidos se cortan y se rebanan, se reordenan y se doblan en base a la fuente original que oscila entre lo reconocible y un algo de otro mundo.

Intricate Connections Formed Without Touch mantiene una estética que es decididamente híbrida: una mezcla de paletas sonoras orgánicas y digitales, fiel a sus influencias experimentales y al mismo tiempo que abarca enfoques armónicos, melódicos y rítmicos.
