Last night from Glasgow proudly presents
MUSIC FOR MEGASTRUCTURES
Following the critical success of their debut album Kipple Arcadia, L-space return with an ambitious new project - Music for Megastructures. Music for Megastructures is a score for a city that does not yet exist; a city of unimaginable scale, strange technologies, and diverse characters. The music is cinematic in scope and scale, combining influence from the likes of Henryk Górecki and Philip Glass with L-space's unique brand of utopian electro pop. It's a used-universe; beautiful in its imperfection.
The album is split into four chapters. [Travel] brings the listener into the city, descending from above on an as-yet-undiscovered technology with deep, crushing synths and squalling sirens. [Work] explores the dramatic alienation of a fully automated workforce; bored robots sing to themselves while workers do what they can to stay relevant. [Health] employs utopian strings and optimistic tones to examine the effects of longer lifespans and transhumanism. The album closes with [Life] - a glimpse into the nightlife of the city; virtual reality gambling, automaton jazz, and neon billboards advertising unobtainable products
Music for Megastructures is a statement of intent from L-space. They're here to soundtrack the future to make the present a bit more beautiful. It will be released on all major digital platforms on the 19th of April 2019.
