♫♪  omrr - “This City Lies”

“This City Lies” by omrr (a project from Cairo-based guitarist/sound artist Omar El Abd), stirs electronic detritus and guitar scratch into a gentle eddy, then makes a graceful retreat, revealing a world of swirling almost-rhythms and miniature glitches in brief bloom. The accompanying video plays scintillating time-lapse and wooded scenes against the presence of human activity and perception. A meaningfully unknowable sensory balm from omrr’s new Eilean release, Music for the Anxious.
