Cool contemporary electronics, all instrumental/computer processed. I have a soft spot for steel pan (aka steel drums), but that sound only briefly surfaces. The precussion is heavily processed, cut, etc so each piece becomes an expression of the artist's wizardry and style.

1. Beautiful shimmer interrupted with glitch buzzes- becomes all glitch, then recognizable snippets of steeldrum, more glitch and silence. Slightly schizo.
2. Pretty ambient, extending the steel pan’s ringing
3. Creepy, creaky dissonant drones with occasional sweeping changes
4.Understated. Steel drum screen saver turns very noisy, drone, back.
5.Accessable, has a beat, fast changes, fun! akin to Aphex Twin
6.high-pitched jittery noise
7.Delicate bubbles of steel pan sound bursting, then a rattling forest rises and is subdued by sparse muted notes
8.sparse scraping sounds, rapid squelches in seas of silence
9.Empty concrete hangar in the wind, strange machines inside
10.Recognizable pan intro layers into a mat
11.drones and quiet glitch
12.quiet glitch
