about

'Embers' marks the emphatic return of Ghoti. A scan through his back catalogue reveals a span of recorded and live material illustrating Patrick Gostovic's sense of abstract ideas constructed of deeply textured sounds. This new material is exactly this, while also exhibiting extreme precision and extended reach in dynamic expression using a palette of synth modules passionately combined over the past few years.

'Phractyl' is elastic glass, breathing and creaking under the strain of sequenced resonance and frequency modulation.

'Aneracam' carries the same self trans-formative characteristics in fractured breaks format reminiscent of Autechre. The spiky rhythms and squelches build and evolve under sharp, precision beats and a stabby organ synth.

The title track 'Embers' is a spacious dub techno cut that incorporates some beautiful pentatonic melodic composition and a stunning organic pluck sound all constructed on Ghoti's custom modular outfit.

'Levin' plays like a calm extension of 'Embers', expanding similar ideas over syncopated angular breaks.

'Bile' seems an advanced geometric continuation of Ghoti's experimental work from his 'Mr Sloth' EP. The beats and bass elements are scrunched and twisted through the duration, blurring the sense of time and continuity.

'Tfhoruere' falls further into the ambient realm as a clash of odd meters and uneven bar lengths converge over circular minimal rhythms. This collection is possibly Ghoti's best work to date and makes for a thrilling return to form as well as an exciting foray into strange new territory...

about

ghoti Toronto, Ontario

Ghoti is Patrick Gostovic from Toronto. He’s a computer programmer, former teenage prog rock devotee, and current Joni Mitchell super-fan. Run that through a modular synth and the results are pretty much what you’d expect.
