about

Sebastian Zel’s debut EP shows the composer diverging from previous outputs (leadership of NYC hip hop collective Tabemono), while also retaining his usual creative focuses. "Construct" uses both traditional and nontraditional percussion instruments to build slowly, transporting listeners through a rhythmic reflection of the artist’s Brooklyn landscape. Fever Dream juxtaposes surreal electronics with highly controlled and active piano playing; using incessant near-repetition and sharp contrast to explore the artist’s experiences with insomnia, anxiety, and fears associated with the passage of time. Zel’s sound world is one of contemplation, guiding listeners through a process that is not focused on a climactic goal but rather the intrigue of perhaps one day getting there.

Released along with the EP is a cinematic performance video of “Fever Dream”, filmed/produced by FourTen Media.
