Multi-instrumentalist, electronic music producer and composer Perdurabo teases more music with ‘No Limits Of Extension’, the second single taken from ‘The Time Traveller‘, the collaborative album created with !K7 artist Davide Tomat, due for release on May 21st –
‘The Time Traveller’ is a record born by a collaboration between Perdurabo and Tomat (!K7),nine tracks written in 2014 and rediscovered on a hard drive during last year’s lockdown. The album focuses on the idea of OOBE – out-of-body experience, a phenomenon in which a person perceives the world from a location outside their physical body. The inspiration comes from reworking the same music compositions at different periods in the artist’s life; each track represents a personal journey and singular OOBE. Music becomes the binder, capable of taking us far during a year of loneliness and immobility.
Talking about ‘No Limits Of Extension’, Perdurabo says; “during an out of the body experience you can stretch in time and space, with no limitations. This is what this track is about. Together with ‘Unleash the Revolution’ is part of a lucid dream I had, the experience was completely different and intoxicating.
‘No Limits Of Extension’, was created with a OP1 programmed sequence recorded analogically with a Prophet synth; ‘you can hear a more powerful sound here,explains Davide. ‘The elements I love the most on this composition are the strings and the piano, both recorded acoustically but treated highly electronically. The orchestra is just me overdubbing my violin dozens of times with three microphones for each take.‘
