Published Jan 07, 2016Toronto electronic artist David Psutka is known to many for his work as Egyptrixx, but he's shining the spotlight on another musical moniker for his next release.
Under the pseudonym Ceramic TL, he'll drop the project's debut album Sign of the Cross Every Mile to the Border on March 15 through Halocline Trance. It will be available as both a cassette and digital download. Last year, Pstuka launched the label with the release of Egyptrixx's Transfer of Energy [Feelings of Power].
The new record was written and produced by Psutka at his Halocline Trance studios in Toronto throughout the summer and fall of 2015. It features seven pieces that range in sound and inspiration, exploring the modern human condition with "low-key grandeur."
A press release explains: "Dense sound mimics massive blankets of haze that clarify the primary forces: consumerism, institutional paternalism, genuine human resilience and ingenuity."
The first sonic incarnation of these themes has arrived with a composition titled "this looks just like it, the answer to my prayers — I thought my life was over until two years later I arrived."
