As part of our collaboration with Indonesian artist Kuntari for the British Council’s Connections Through Culture programme, we’ve now released two new Orchestra of Samples tracks, both sampling field recordings made in Indonesia and elsewhere. Our two new tracks, Somewhere Else and 4 Times, are part of the release called Pararatronic, together with two tracks from Kuntari and released by Dutch label Audiomaze.
The cover artwork of the EP is by Indonesian artist Rakasu, and there’s more info about the whole project here on our other Addictive TV artist’s website.
You can listen to the whole EP with Kuntari‘s and our tracks on Bandcamp, Spotify and all other streaming platforms.
