CLOT Mix: Phantom Limb presents Dylan Henner
We inaugurate a new series of mixtapes specially created for CLOT Magazine. The first instalment comes from the hand of Phantom Limb and a newcomer to their rooster, Dylan Henner, presenting Alternating Microsound with Film Score: a mixtape.
Both of these categories of music acknowledge environment. In film score, a soundtrack is part of worldbuilding; it is a key part of the film universe, part of its reality. Microsound music does something similar. It follows different rules to pop music, operating only within its own tiny world. Like film score, it is not made to be a filler of empty space, but to be details within it, like the literal case of NASA’s audio recording of the sounds made by Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko as it flies through the outer universe.
A Secretive newcomer, Dylan Henner describes his work as “bliss-out ambient”. Henner released his debut EP A Reason for Living through Phantom Limb in February 2019.
