Puzzles and Studies by Electric Capablanca - SWIMS [SWIM02] FLAC download included with physical items

Puzzles and Studies

A 9 track ambient album (33m 5s) — released May 17th 2024 on SWIMS

Crucial reissue of the cult Electric Capablanca LP, on SWIMS.

"A mechanical ghost in the corner of our room, The Electric Capablanca spins spectres, shades and sonics while nobody looks.

Lifestyle product for a Dolce Vita dreamer, the device – abandoned by one careless owner – now dreams up probable chaos."

Released September 2019, enjoy these new hallucinations from no known author; a machined mega-puzzle of miscalculated patterns, automatic failures and lost coffee house betas.

Turn the dials to creak splinters of 70s Italian midi classical (Venosta, Musci), imagined mitteleuropa ambient (Froese, Popol Vuh) and spiritual mathematics from the old new world (Spiegel, Hassell, Riley).
