I already presented you the X-track by MRWIZE a while ago. Today the 19 year old newcomer with a debut EP in the works, dropped the visuals for the deep song. The video’s a mesh of stark, open-ended shots and more busied night-time cuts. It’s hard to tell if the scenery is determinedly gloomy, as a means of matching the song’s tale of a fractured relationship. The whole piece concludes with a stumbling figure, staggering through the night, with the sound of an answered phonecall its only backdrop. It’s always important to support young upcoming artists, and MRWIZE definitely is an artist worth supporting.

SOMNI is an audio programme, created to help me in recording, songwriting and potentially live performance.
The left side is similar to a Suzuki Omnichord, controlled (using keyboard & cursor) with chord keys and a strummable touchplate. As well as using the touchplate there are three extra modes, which allow for random arpeggiation, sweeping arpeggiation, and burst (kind of like an instant randomised strum). It currently has 8 voices, both synth and acoustic samples, as well as the ability to augment the scale, meaning suspended or atonal music can be made.
