- Words: Patric Fallon
It's completely apparent, both from the wealth of sonic textures in his beat work and the loads of experimental sounds he recently gave away for free download on his Disk Collection, that LA sound artist matthewdavid is a lover of fuzzy, organic, shapeshifting, inexplicable soundscapes. With nothing more than a brief, nonsensical quote to accompany it ("Who has not felt Outmind falling from the sky, half-speed?"), the Leaving Records honcho offered up "Outmind" for download on his label's website. The track is categorized under "ambient/collage," and really, not much more else can be said about it. The sonic scientist made an aural landscape that feels like being underground and underwater, and all you can do is lay still, listening to the muffled rumblings pass by.
