five cycles through an empty chamber





The dark sounds of “Five Cycles Through An Empty Chamber” were created during the first few weeks artist Emra Grid was living in Yogyakarta, Indonesia during the Spring of 2020. The change of environment as well as the global issues particular to the time period are reflected in the four track album in an indirect way... or maybe not.

Music for spectral and somber autumnal twilights.


Aesthetically, the sound of Emra Grid experiments with the relationship between sound and empty space in order to accentuate the connections between phrasing and dynamics. The result is a highly visual synthesis of soundscapes, drones and continuous permutations of bass frequencies, which gradually come together and slowly fall apart.

Producer and multi instrumentalist Emra Grid first appeared with his acclaimed debut EP: 'The Same Face' on Opal Tapes in 2016. Since then he has been releasing a steady yet powerful stream of music that has subtly evolved with every release. His sound infuses murky industrial distortion with a dense harmonic pallet, creating a style both serene and ominous. Emra Grid’s style embodies a constant contrast between suspense and nostalgic warmth. His music ranges from the darkest drone to ambient to the outer limits of sound, always marked with a characteristic quality of personal content.
