Hieroglyphic Being is one of those artists who conjures that wonderful genre-straddling effect of recalling various sources whilst retaining a complete, unique originality. Ostensibly a House purveyor from Chicago, his vast, labyrinthine output has stretched, warped and caved in on itself, deconstructing and re-structuring his sound into a plethora of new, alternative forms. His latest offering, Imaginary Landscapes #1-10, are a fantastic continuation of his seemingly tireless work, journeying through horror-laden John Carpenter synths, emerald seas of electronic ambience and fugal-phasing rhythmic complexities. This is intelligent, experimental and emotive electronic music at its finest.
Catch him at the bizarrest of all possible venues, the Royal Albert Hall, on Wednesday 10th October.
