I've followed the career of electronic pioneer Joel Ebner for a few years now, having reviewed his earlier project City States on the original scatterfilter blog. I always expect well crafted sound when listening to his works.

His new incarnation as Avvenir and the premier release Glyphs are no exception. The structures unfold in subtle ways, providing an elegance to the works. Random percussion and sound effects infect the tone paintings. Ear candy is provided with novel sound design, and clean production. A concept of typography is endemic.

This album is everything an experimental electronic music enthusiast might look for. Certainly it's worth some attention.

You can find Avvenir on Twitter as @_Avvenir and on Soundcloud. Also check the new video for Prepress on You Tube.
