"Made feeling steady in a stream of optimism, complexity and intimacy" "A loose and natural vibe in the face of controlled electronically designed music" "Will quite possibly put a blissful smile on your face" "Playful and joyous" "This is a composer who knows his stuff, very well" thetinboxmusic.com/press/ The Tin Box is a solo project by US composer Tucker Sferro. Sferro is something of a rarity when it comes to electronic production: beforehand he was a brass player in a jazz ensemble who’s transformed into an electronic producer. Invisible Kin lives up to Sferro’s own musical history. This is a composer who knows his stuff. Very well. Invisible Kin is a record that’s been made feeling steady in a stream of optimism, complexity and intimacy. In fact barely a tone here is jangling or discordant—everything is focused, intricate and direct. Invisible Kin’s sound has its roots in Autechre’s easier material, or Boards of Canada’s more upbeat and uptempo productions. A line found in Invisible Kin’s press release is how the sound is occupied with “mathematical models of probability…and how this weaves a component of chance into compositions" and when we think how Sferro uses sequencers this is an insightful description. The description translates to a loose and natural vibe, in the face of controlled electronically designed music. Sferro used to play in jazz ensembles—chance and improvisation are fundamentals of jazz and they’re also fundamentals of Invisible Kin.
