Listen to palence's bespoke atmospheric 'Telophase'

London-based recording artist and soundscape composer Savanh Phaophanit aka palence has released his new EP telophase on the 1st September via THE PLAYGROUND Records. Over the course of several years he has garnered a substantial online audience. A number of his tracks have been featured on popular underground music channels such as ‘The accidental poet’ and ‘FOMH’ receiving over 2.5 million Youtube views.
Inspired by post-rock and slowcore melodies, palence cites influences such as Explosions
In The Sky and Low, as well as the likes of artists such as Aphex Twin, Duster, Bluetile Lounge, drip-133 to name a few.

Using a 1971 Tandberg 4000X reel to reel player, palence has created a unique and personalised set of textures and timbres to use as tools for producing. Running his 1981 Gibson ES-335 through his reel to
reel and splicing individual notes into short stabs, he recycled the noises and drenched them with reverb to create bespoke atmospheric synth-like sounds.

The EP’s emphasis on hand-crafted sounds and reluctance to rely on any pre-recorded or sampled material is demonstrative of his desire to separate himself from a rapidly growing scene of sample-heavy production, whilst simultaneously displaying his enthusiasm for original and pioneering methods of creating music.
