Extropy (waag_rel083)

by Matthew VandenBrook

Radiation 05:26

Extropy … a noun … the theory that cultural and technological development will expand indefinitely and in an orderly progressive manner throughout the universe, the tendency of systems to grow more organised.

I am proud to present a wonderfully atmospheric and very “sci-fi” (as my daughter described it) album from Matthew VandenBrook entitled “Extropy” … more ambient than his previous release, the marvellous “Sound Then Silence (waag_rel064)” released just over one year ago, “Extropy” has an eerie cinematic quality about it that I love.

This is music that paints pictures in my head: abandoned places in the furthest reaches of our imagination, late at night in a Blade Runner-esque dystopian urban expanse of neon and reflection, the chattering of Gibson’s sprawl at dawn … the kind of things that seem to run contrary with the title.

Who knows what the future will bring … will it expand indefinitely? I don’t know. What I do know, however, is that I will enjoy this album for years to come. VandenBrook has surpassed himself.

A 320kbps version of this release will be available over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts) for free with a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ which does include ‘free’. If you decide to download this album here for free, and you can with our best wishes, then all we ask is that you please tell people about it.
