Rian Treanor Signs to Planet Mu for Album Debut, ‘ATAXIA’
'ATAXIA' lands March 15.
The full-length follows singles for The Death Of Rave and Warp’s Arcola imprint. Its title means “the loss of full control of bodily movements” and relates to Treanor’s music which is “intended to make people’s bodies move in unpredictable ways.” He adds, “the angles in the letters, the phonetics seem to mirror the geometry and idiosyncratic patterns in the music.” Components of the tracks were made by generating a series of irregular events and re-structuring them or by destabilising a pattern that is constant.
We’re told that ATAXIA is more focused and stricter, and more co-ordinated in terms of the track selection and the rhythmic structures than the UK artist’s previous works. “My earlier EPs share a similar interest in angular and asymmetrical rhythms that are designed for club sound systems,” Treanor says, adding “they were more improvised, focusing on sequencing and pattern modulation, using standard drum sounds and synthesiser patches.”
