A new album by Tomáš Dvořák aka Floex is out today. Shoulders of Giants is a soundtrack to the eponymous game by the independent New York game studio Moving Pieces Interactive.
“Even though the album was originally created as a soundtrack, I see it as a full-fledged title that works on its own. This might be because of its overall style, which is more energetic than in my previous soundtracks. Nonetheless, I am curious how my music will be perceived by the listeners: Is it cinematic techno or rather an electroacoustic recording of a new generation? Either way, I believe that they will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed composing it,” Floex reveals.
The six new tracks are built mainly on electronic foundations fuelled by the energy of densely built beats. Precisely constructed synthesizer planes variedly change character and tension, the electronics oscillates between cinematicity and a club atmosphere. Acoustic instruments such as the mandolin or recordings of primitive flutes are synthesising and transforming in real time into shapes that leave the listener in doubt whether what they are experiencing is a musical reality or an illusion. Floex’s music allows you to fully immerse yourself into the environment and to naturally flow along with it.
“This is the first record from my new studio in Úvaly and a recording with a sound that is personally groundbreaking for me. The individual compositions are largely inspired by various landscapes. Shoulders of Giants is a flight through soundscapes of different kinds. How does a crystalline world sound? How do I imagine forest electronics or tropical music? The individual tracks are my answers to these questions,” Floex adds.
