Electronica, industrial and dub sounds twisted into one beautiful album.

Michael Hodgson has forged a relentless path in the music world since his early days as Tinnitus and The Projector Mix. The latter led to him meeting Paddy Free and forming Pitch Black in 1996, since when they have released 5 albums and toured the world numerous times. Not personally interested in making popular music or following trends, Michael is happiest on the edges, subverting conventional musical structures and echo systems.

His sublime new album 'Sixteen Sunsets', is alive with sonic ideas and influenced by the multitude of sounds he's gathered as he travels the world. 'Found sounds' have been woven together into delicate yet sophisticated pastiches, layered and twisted with beats and melody, leaving the listener to sense the world around. The cicadas of a Greek island, the automated voice of a Stockholm bus, the sounds of rubber on cobblestones at a Roman roundabout, the unusual chug of a narrowboat on a London canal - all are drenched in effects and underpinned with Hodgson's signature dub and bass.

A Russian language vowel sounds 7' box set discovered in a charity store, Hodgson researched which nations had sent astronauts to the International Space Station. The 7'' became the vocal bed for the title track 'Sixteen Sunsets', which was then augmented with vowel sounds from the other nations who have also inhabited the ISS. The title is inspired by the phenomenon that, every day, due to orbiting the Earth every 90 minutes, the residents of the ISS witness 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets.

From the top of the album to the last note an hour later, this is a non-stop sonic journey around our planet from the streets of a metropolis to the mountain tops and valleys where the insects being to hum in the morning sun. It is a journey where the frequencies provide a twisted commentary on our 21st century world, melding organic, industrial, dub and electronica into one beautiful album.
