Having been selective with new music over his career, Planète (Melbourne producer Dion Tartaglione) continues his most prolific year to date with today's release of his debut EP Continuum. Having paired with UK-powerhouse label Anjunadeep for the well-received 'Alone in Parallel / Faded Memory' back in February, he now turns his attention toward this unique release. Continuum is one complete session, separated into five tracks/movements.
Of the release, Tartaglione says; I've had the idea of creating a continuous and seamless playback style EP for quite a while. It isn't a new idea but it was new for me to try. The EP is centralised on the theme of a thought process and its relationship with consciousness. The themes in the undercurrent of the tracks play out as a succession of this process pulling together internal and external patterns. The way in which the EP is themed is a direct relationship to the approach I took whilst making it.
The EP is released alongside an incredible accompanying visualiser, created by Melbourne-artist Tristan Jalleh, whose 'fictional realities' have gained recognition both locally and abroad. His work with Oscar Key Sung saw him nominated for The Berlin Music Video Awards in 2014, while he has shown collaborative and solo works with The NGA, LaTrobe Institute of Art, ARTBAR@ MCA, as well as being a part of AsiaLink’s Put Up A Signal project with artists working in Indonesia.
