why we love this

Time is losing its meaning, as does the concept of waiting, leaving us in a blissful state of weightlessness.

about the record

More Die of Heartbreak is the first full-length from electronic composer and multi-disciplinary visual artist Amosphère. Born in China, partly educated in Japan, and now residing in Paris, her work came to the attention of a wider circle of listeners when she was invited by Laurel Halo to perform as part of a 10-hour durational ambient concert at London’s Mode Exchange in 2019. Inspired by personal touchstones including Tarkovsky’s Solaris, the subtly wavering grids of Agnes Martin, and the heterophonic layers of Chinese traditional music, Amosphère uses a careful selection of vintage electronics, sophisticated harmonic sense, and keen compositional intelligence to invite listeners into a meditative sonic space. Time expands and contracts, simplicity reveals complexity, and repetition becomes patient transformation.

Spread out over six expansive yet self-contained tracks, More Die of Heartbreak serves as a perfect introduction to Amosphère’s warmly enveloping approach to analogue sound. Developed from scores (contained in the accompanying booklet) using techniques from concrete poetry and graphic notation as well as fragments of traditionally notated material, these six pieces take in a broad sweep of moods and approaches, from the gently burbling layered monophonic patterns of the opening ‘circuit of unconsciousness’, reminiscent of the sun-drenched synth figures of 70s Alvin Curran, to the haunted gliding tones and reverberating pops of the closing ‘melting a piece of cadmium.’
