Beyond The Zero

Spatial Relation - Beyond The Zero

The eight songs that make up Beyond the Zero were produced, recorded, and mixed in the band's home studio from 2012 to 2014. All tracks have been mastered with care by the famed Dutch producer and engineer Alden Tyrell. With influences ranging from 1980s minimal synth to Skam-styled IDM, Spatial Relation's music draws equally from the early pop work of Depeche Mode and the later electro sounds of Adult. Emphasizing hard beats, thick basslines, and hypnotic arpeggios, the minimalist arrangements onBeyond the Zero are geared for maximum effect. Created with a carefully chosen selection of analog electronic instruments, the album pairs the overtly synthetic sounds of hardware with human vocal experimentation. Highlighting deep interests in history and the arts, Lissette's darkly romantic vocals touch on themes of disillusionment and alienation in the post-modern world. With references to geometry, precision, chaos, and probability, the lyrics expose a mysterious universe of parallel and intersecting ideas. At times the vocal work is atmospheric, draped loosely over electronic soundscapes; other songs reveal a harder spoken-word style, with staccato rhymes delivered in lockstep with crisp drum-machine rhythms.
