Broken Chip – ‘Nothing To See Here’ (mp3)
Broken Chip is a one man electronica act based in the Blue Mountains. ‘Nothing To See Here’ is pulled from Powwow Seven , which is part of Feral Media’s Powwow (see also: AFXJIM).
It sounds largely like a modern, minimalist classical composition mixed with a lullaby, but with its broad, icy atmosphere penetrated by moments of floating static and cut-up beats. It’s a calming, beautiful track that transforms a simple piano figure into something that sounds equally like the soundtrack to some haunting, blue-washed opening credits or a guy fastidiously messing about on his laptop in the dark. Either way, the image is fitting and the result is fairly amazing.
