Been meaning to check this out. Oscillateur got me into her. Her sounds are a little more than this but I have wanted to dub some music as 'Pedal-Core' or 'Pedal-gaze'. This is not meant to be a disparaging comment but there are some musicians where the use of pedals is intrinsic to the sounds (using and thinking about pedals as compositional tools instead of just sound shapers).


This one actually seems less pedal-y, there are a few different instruments but I get where you are coming from for sure. Jean Baudin is another one where he is essentially playing one (enormous) instrument through another (enormous) instrument.

There is so much potential in pedals now that it does seem kind of ludicrous to not compose based on what you have available at your feet but I suppose it is a niche thing compared to that whole "jamming blues rock through a Klone into a Dumble and everything else is bullshit soundscaping" paradigm that apparently most musicians on the internet go in for.


If you mean "musician who uses a stringed instrument", then sure. Most pedals are super ducking limited compared to other sonic manipulation tools, though.

Admittedly I am coming from a stringy background. But even with synths, which are much more powerful in the scope of sounds possible, I think that a half decent delay pedal can open up much more musical possibilities.

I suppose what I meant was the breadth of external signal processing options available now give musicians more compositional opportunities than just shredding your sweet skills as much as possible. Allan Holdsworth played a synth ax (sp?) of all things so to my mind all avenues of creativity are worth pursuing. I can't speak with any authority about synths or modular setups as I am nowhere near smart enough to comprehend them.

Nice! I love these guys.

I don't have much to add. I've fallen behind in the last few years. I will say the Ruins of Beverast album is one of my favorites from this year.

Also thanks for the tip on the Dreamdecay album. That was great. I'm always looking for some kind of newer post-punk types of things.
