The US experimental-music creator Chvad SB was introduced a couple of years ago.

His latest release Phenomenalism, Cartesian Doubt and Bomb #20 (available on bandcamp), although only a one track single is best heard when you have plenty of time to wrap yourself in the contusions as it lasts for over seventy three minutes.
Created by using feedback loops made, not by computer or human input, rather by a modular synthesiser. Phenomenalism, Cartesian Doubt and Bomb #20 was a concept first considered back in 2014 and took four months to complete the recording. Despite being randomly generated loops the track has a hauntingly hypnotic organic sound.

Chvad SB is a New York, USA, based experimental music creator.
Allow yourself plenty of time before hitting play as Chvad SB delivers his extended pieces which can run to the best part of a quarter of an hour. The grumbling and groaning crackles commingle to form rumblings of malevolence which dissipate through the brain in ever flowing threads of sound. Electronically generated sounds combine with hand-made instruments, guitars and occasional vocal to paint aural abstract imagery of loss.
Whilst stretching the electronics, the music doesn’t sit uncomfortably with the listener who is drawn into the eerie noises that simultaneously have a calming and restive resonance. The creations are not impenetrable as Chvad SB develops the themes of the tracks in exquisite loops, which despite their duration are stripped of the extraneous giving the resulting out-put an earthy realism.
Having been around for a few years now Chvad SB has been able to refine his craft and the latest release, the seven track enigmatically titled, Crickets Were The Compass is a fine exposition of his work. I recommend finding some time to explore the themes and virtual organic synthetics of a talented sound designer.
