“In my case a picture is a sum of destructions. I do a picture then I destroy it. In the end, though, nothing is lost; the red I took away from one place turns up somewhere else.” - Pablo Picasso
Inspired by this timeless quote that transcends all media of art creation, Human Centerpiece began crafting his sonic version of this visual philosophy.
As a producer who’s style knows no bounds and drawing on life journeys, experiences and mind states Human Centerpiece manages to effortlessly grab the listeners ear and invite them to travel through his creative process.
The angelic pads of “The Creation” introduce us to this journey of destruction and lead us to scattered percussion and deep rumbling bass lines. All cemented together with a rolling break introduced in the later phrases. “The Creation” is an attention grabbing and theme establishing introduction that has the listener wanting more, and Human Centerpiece delivers in the subsequent tracks.
Wanting to expand his skill base and production techniques we hear the evident use of granular synthesis in “Fractals” - his first time trying this type of synthesis.
In fitting with the theme of destruction to his art, the following track “The Destruction” is made up from broken down and resampled elements of its predecessors. A heavy hitting and raw track overflowing with style, energy and swagger.
From this peak of energy comes a natural breakdown in the form
“Welcome To The Hyperbolic Time Chamber”. Its pad based intro with almost whispered vocal samples educe serenity and as the track builds to its 90’s style break and synth pads with etheric vocal layers we are back to the natural flow of the album and introduced to the crescendo of The Sum Of All Destruction.
Taking inspiration from many genres, such as Drum & Bass, Garage, Dubstep and Downtempo, The Sum Of All Destruction is the perfect project to rip down any boundaries it might be place in.
