CD released: May 01, 2020
Third Album is the Constellation debut from Montr al-based multi-disciplinary artist and musician/composer Markus Lake, who's been releasing audio works under the Markus Floats moniker over the past decade. Using primarily in-the-box midi instruments, along with a smattering of samples and field recordings, Third Album is through-composed and atypically but unfailingly expressive - like ruminative action paintings in sound. Digitally-processed notes and chords extrapolate in transitory thematic clusters of harmony and melody, often referencing organ sounds of alternately liturgical and souljazz resonance. Constellation is delighted to welcome Markus Lake to the roster and to be releasing Third Album with artwork that features his own paintings, including in a deluxe 180gram vinyl edition that includes an exquisite 12"x24" art print reproduction.
