Boomkat Product Review:
Gorgeous woozy new-age business here from Dylan Henner on the AD 93 (fka Whities) label. Visible Cloaks fans take note, Henner's negative-space rich compositions have plenty in common with the Portland duo's more recent material, seemingly referencing similar Japanese sources.
Henner has mentioned the influence of "Akira" OST composers Geinoh Yamashirogumi, and we hear new age deity Hiroshi Yoshimura's blissful restraint in there too. It shouldn't be much of a surprise - Henner's last records were influenced by gamelan and travels in Sri Lanka and Vietnam, and his pacing here certainly speaks to those same roots. Yet there's also elements of Oneohtrix Point Never and even James Ferraro as Henner manipulates synthesized vocals to fit his vision.
"The Invention of the Human" considers the question "what makes us human?", melting computerized sounds into compositions that sound unshakably mortal. If this sounds like it might be another slice of dystopian doom musing on the downfall of humanity though, u couldn't be more wrong; Henner's sound is surprisingly sunny and his playfulness as he fuses real world elements with plasticky computerized sounds is totally charming. We all need a bit of light right now innit.
