Son Zept exploded onto the electronic scene last year with the release of the Q2B EP on Belfast based experimental label RESIST. Exploring electronic genre de-construction, power ambient, IDM and electro-acoustic, it was hailed as one of the finest and most interesting projects to emerge from the city in quite some time.
Composing for a PhD, and exploring the divide between ‘academic music’ and electronic music at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) at Queens University, Son Zept has been uniting the two, creating a meeting point between trance induced flashbacks, rave inspired memories and the ideology behind it all.
'Rave Memory' is the final track from the release. The video was created using an old laser, which he re-arranged and slowed down to incite the idea of a rave memory – something loose, yet something that almost everyone can relate to.
Moving images of horse galloping into the hills, flowers blossoming and lovers dancing, blended with the cinematic, inspiring and almost overwhelming power ambience, makes for a captivating, and often moving, experience.
Watch it now.
