Pulsing, rattling, buzzing, quivering, the music of LA-based artist Cyrus Rex is a sumptuous feast of sound. Here’s a musician who connects massive arrays of gear, like some post-apocalyptic robot dream, and then makes it sound like it – rapid-fire machine reveries set in motion amidst nests of cables.
Little wonder this video at top, with Cyrusrex and Baseck, comes from MuffWiggler. It is full of gear:
Cyrusrex + Baseck – Modular Synth, DSI Tempest, DevilFish TB303, Strymon BigSky, casio #DBC611G-1D
But don’t stop there. Cyrus Rex’s music is an IDM orgy of synthesizers, each sound precise and exquisite amidst the raging terror of noise.
Sharing this same attention to sonic detail and big-screen cinematic expanse – yes, we love LA – is the collaboration with Douglas J McCarthy, DJMREX.
