After six solo electronic/ambient albums and his 2016 collaborations with Steve Roach (Biosonic and Second Nature, Projekt) Robert Logan’s new album blends surprising electronic and acoustic sources, terraforming bright, melodic molten sound with an enraptured experience of the natural world.

Sculptor Galaxy resonates with the spirit of the albums that captured Logan’s imagination as a youngster: film music, 70s and 80s electronic, and progressive rock. The album connects with the work of early Roach, Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and Jean Michel Jarre, sounding at times like the album Jarre would create today had he continued exploring the universe began with 1984’s fantastically unusual Zoolook.

Steve Roach brings his decades of know-how producing cohesive extended albums. After a period of long-distance collaborating and some mentorship along the way, Roach invited Logan to Arizona to assist sequencing and assembling the ten tracks into a beautifully singular continuous mix. Like a compelling work of cinema, the album’s power flows as each scene talks thematically to the next to create a vibrantly structured, vivid whole.

Vibrant electronic performances, detailed tone-sculpting, processed natural sounds (captures from Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Hungarian village life and the UK’s shores), and unusual acoustic instruments inform a musical world of exotic majesty and boundless adventure. There is a warmth to Sculptor Galaxy making it a powerful exploration of themes that have infused Logan’s work: flesh and spirit, technology and nature, mind and matter, and wonder at the worlds that wait beyond the stars.

In-depth edit of the album bio:

Blending sensitive electronic and acoustic sources, Sculptor Galaxy terraforms bright, melodic molten sound with an enraptured experience of the natural world finalized by intuitive sculpting. After six solo electronic/ambient albums and his 2016 collaborations with Steve Roach (Biosonic and Second Nature, Projekt) Logan entered an extended studio session to explore new musical languages creating sonically rich and intricate tracks. Diving into the imagination and cosmos, coupling cinematic breath and mystery with a playful sense of freeform discovery and exuberance, Logan assimilates a range of musical approaches. Sculptor Galaxy combines the classical symphonic writing that defined his upbringing with a thirst for discovering new ways of transmitting emotion through sonics and the cutting-edge of technology.

Logan, a 30-year-old Englishman, is a 2013 Emmy-nominated composer and producer who released his first album, Cognessence, at the age of 19. Sculptor Galaxy reveals an exciting new phase in Logan’s music, a phase characterized by a fresh reintegration of traditional harmonic and melodic writing, rich analog instrumentation and brighter atmospherics augmenting the freewheeling experimentation, galactic structures and sense of discovery that has characterized his past works.

Steve Roach brings his decades of know-how producing cohesive extended albums to the production, by sequencing and assembling the ten tracks. After a period of long-distance collaborating and some mentorship along the way, Roach invited Logan to Arizona to assist editing the diverse material into a beautifully singular continuous mix. Like a compelling work of cinema, the album’s power flows as each scene talks thematically to the next to create a vibrantly structured, vivid whole.

Sculptor Galaxy resonates with the spirit of the albums that captured Logan’s imagination as a youngster: film music, 70s and 80s electronic, and progressive rock. The album connects with the work of early Roach, Vangelis, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, and Jean Michel Jarre, sounding at times like the album Jarre could have created today had he continued exploring the universe began with 1984’s fantastically unusual Zoolook. The influences infusing Logan’s galaxy are wide, ranging from fusion and minimalism, to Japanese and African music, to field recordings captured of natural environments, cityscapes, animals and people across the world. Soundcaptures from Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Hong Kong, Hungarian village life and the UK’s shores appear throughout the album.

Sculptor Galaxy is fuelled by wonder of space and astronomical phenomena and the movements, behaviors and sonics of creatures large and microscopic. Biological noises, voice oscillations and custom-created vocal synthesizers subtly pulsate throughout the album’s symphonic hybrid opener, “Sovreign,” while delicate microtonal interlocking melodics ebb and flow through the album’s intricate minimalism/systems-music inspired mid-piece “The Weaver.”

Vibrant electronic performances, detailed tone-sculpting, processed natural sounds, and unusual acoustic instruments inform a musical world of exotic majesty and boundless adventure. There is a new warmth to Sculptor Galaxy making it a powerful exploration of themes that have infused Logan’s work: flesh and spirit, technology and nature, mind and matter, and wonder at the worlds that wait beyond the stars.
