Rafael Toral - Space Elements Vol. III - LP


***400 pressed on 200g plasma vinyl***

Also available at Forced Exposure

According to Rafael Toral, the Space Program is all about a simple idea: to perform abstract electronic music under jazz values. The result is full of fascinating paradoxes: "melodic without notes, rhythmic without a beat, familiar but strange, meticulous but radically free". We are now releasing its most eloquent example so far:

"Space Elements Vol. III" is the strongest and musically most diverse statement within Rafael Toral's Space Program to date. You will experience "jazz on electronics" in full effect - a totally new language in sound. (Staubgold). 

With blooming sound, compliments of the mastering by James Plotkin (not found on previous releases in the Space Program), Space Elements Vol. III has a very rhythmic, percussive character. It unfolds a fresh set of collaborations with an array of drummers and percussionists, while Toral's electronic phrasing reaches previously unheard heights of maturity.
