The self-described “opto-musical agglomerate” return with their latest full-length effort.
Sculpture is the pairing of British musician Dan Hayhurst and New Zealand animator Reuben Sutherland, whose experimental audio-visual works have been released on Digitalis, Dekorder, Kaleidoscope and more.
Membrane Pop is their Software debut: 11 tracks of analog-vs-digital, programmed-vs-improvised rhythmic experiments. “I’m aiming to make a coherent, adventurous electronic pop record with its own voice and identity,” says Hayhurst. “I don’t think experimental music has to be dark, difﬁcult or joyless. I try to make something playful, and maybe a little absurd.”
The album will be released in LP and digital formats on May 13. The cover, tracklist, and video for the ebullient ‘Polymorphic Operator’ are below.
