Core Alter - m-Realizable (3OP001)

Core Alter is Steve Baxter and Elliott Watson. m-Realizable was made swapping sysex files back and forth between Brisbane, Australia, and San Diego, USA, mastered from the raw edits of its creative sessions.

m-Realizable is sonically equally spacious and dense, disruptive and meditative, fiercely digital and organic all at once. Opaque yet open-ended in its unfolding narrative and how you’ll distill the music.

Rather than hyping each tune, we urge you to dive in, and to absorb it fully. You might pick a few possible influences while listening to m-Realizable, yet I’m positive you’ll quickly realize how personal, honest, deep and singular this 7 tracker is.

As a related note, this is the perfect release to kickstart 3OP : the label almost created itself before our eyes (Elliott’s, Steve’s and mine), and it was a spontaneous yet obvious decision to release a Core Alter opus first. Asking Andrew Bates to handle visuals was our next move as a collective. I’m delighted I get to master our catalogue.

Dream team work at play.

-Nil

This release is dedicated to the memory of our friend Salvatorin (Philip Josef Glowa).

Written and Performed by Steve Baxter and Elliott Watson
Mastered by Nil Hartman

Quote

The core may experience amnesia when an alter takes control
A wall of voices, arranged and coordinated
Frequencies were modulated

Brilliant stuff! Upon first listen my favourite track would be the long one in the middle called inf_recurse, I love those fragmented patterns

We toyed with calling this EP inf_recurse at one point ...

For any of those interested,  this release is all digitone like the last one but with multi tracking and with using a midi loop to gain control over the FX lanes.  We used the same method of exchanging the .syx files to collaborate and write

Yeah, and I think our approach to the writing and swapping of the files was enhanced this time around.

Thanks for the kind words everyone 🍻

Very impressive, true FM wizardry. Listened to it a second time in my car this morning and it's really, really good, fantastic first release for the label !

By the way, if you grabbed the physical edition and had / have any issue downloading the release, please PM me. It happened to me a couple of times as a buyer, and it’s easy to solve on our end.

Besides, I’ll start shipping around Sept. 27th, I still have a thing or two to figure out to make the package as elegant as possible (a labor of love heh).

Anyway, thank YOU everyone for your support. I’ll add that we aim to give the biggest share of the revenues we can to the artists, so your purchase directly funds their creation.

Thanks for those kind words. 

The tracks for the next one are basically in the can! We wrote a fairly large amount of tracks for these releases; second one is expansive and can't wait to share

[SPAM]if you haven't already, do yourself a favor and check m-Realizable[/SPAM]

If you've ordered a physical copy, please note it's been shipped (I believe you guys have received a notification from Bandcamp). I can't wait for the copies to drop in your mailboxes, I'm super proud of the package. FYI, the USB flash drives contains the 24bit 48kHz files, straight out of the mastering session. I've double checked all the flash drives myself, if you enconter any issue with yours please PM me.

Yeap it’s here! Classy look, classy materials! Well done!
Hard to say something new about this stellar release! The music is ultra modern but not sterile, quite emotional actually! Bravo guyz! 👏 

Flawless mastering by Nil and Oscillik’s photography is beautiful as always!

      Digital release (inc. 24bit downloads) & limited Archive Edition, via 3OP    Notein is Mersad Muminović, hailing from Hrvatska (Croatia), and 3OP presents to the world his stunning work Salire.
      Like vistas of wide open space. Crisp cool air on a spring morning with droplets of dew on each blade of grass. Salire will take you to places, to environments, to landscapes. Where you end up is up to you and how you interact with the story.
      Salire is a saga; expansive and enveloping. Salire is a fine wine. Salire is an oceanic voyage on a seaworthy vessel.
      As if some drone synth machinery from a bygone era was commandeered and recalibrated with firmware updates and paired with gracefully applied field recordings, Notein has constructed detailed textures, nuanced layers, and a narrative driven sonic journey that rewards both the active listener and the weary traveler. Washes of electrical and computed synthetic fabrics purify like pools of mana.
      Some say the modern world is succumbing to instant gratification, consumerism, fickle attention span, cheapening of art, and the tyranny of convenience. Salire stands tall and strong against these tides, like a monolith of structure upon the sands of chaos.
      It's the least percussive and most atmospheric/ambient 3OP release so far, and we're excited about that. Salire boldly defies genre or categorization: it's a classic, timeless work that that we are proud to release.

      I'll simply add that Salire is an absolutely gorgeous, enveloping and masterfully executed LP by @xox

      Preview (the first 90 seconds of each track) :
      Calum Gunn is a Scottish electronic musician and programmer based in Berlin, Germany. His sonic recordings and performances (as well as his label Conditional) are legendary, and we are beyond proud and excited to be able to release his tunes on 3OP.

      Excessive Step is of the most exciting albums I've listened to in recent memory, and we sense it's a classic in the making. Experimental, yet accessible. Emotive and contemplative, but never really nostalgic. Crisp, digital, modern: very much computer music, yet quite organic and human as well. The sonic symbiosis of human and machine in realtime. A kind of cybernetic perfection.

      On the surface, this is a wicked collection of pure bangers, Tidal Cycles based jams, and DJ applications. But we are confident you'll find this this to be a tantalizing and very cohesive album experience, filled with adventure and character. It's futuristic electro, yet we've found that Excessive Step has a timelessness to it.

      We hope you enjoy this sonic journey as much as we have over the last few months of many, many listens. I feel lucky to have had this in my playlist up to now. It really is so much FUN to listen to.

      -E

      Absolute belter of an LP, a future classic IMO.

      https://threeop.bandcamp.com/music
      William Fields uses his very own software composition tools to create some of the most compelling computer music you’ll hear. Quite the opposite of a click-bait gimmick, his FieldOS allows him to perform live breath-takingly human yet intricate improvisations. From the tip of his fingers to our hard drives, he can bang a stunning 5 minute piece of proper sonic wizardry... in 5 minutes. This belies the countless hours of development put into his compositional system.
      Fluidity is a rather unique entry to Fields' discography. While I consider myself a proper fanboy of his output, I've never heard William venture into such luxuriant, at times serene, at times tectonic territories. The technical virtuosity never gets in the way of a delicate, rich, introspective listening experience.
      While each tune explores its own singular logic, Fluidity offers a deep, engaging ethereal narrative : approaching this 7 tracker as a whole is extremely rewarding. Numerous images come to mind as the music tells its stories : what will yours be ?
      We at 3OP are delighted to share Fluidity with you. The music is stellar, we know you’ll listen to Fluidity in repeat, just like we’ve been.
