Shares new video “Slow Fade”

“Hair-raising and psychedelic…a dreamworld of vibrations and melody” – Pitchfork on “Slow Fade”

“Avery’s new album will be good if it follows Slow Fade’s teasing lead” – Resident Advisor

Following the announcement of his long-awaited second album Song For Alpha and surprise EP Slow Fade, Daniel Avery shares a video for the latter’s title track today. The London producer has also announced a run of dates in North American and Europe in support of the new LP this spring. These dates include special all-night-long sets in New York, Los Angeles, London, Glasgow, Paris, Dublin and Manchester. Full dates below. Watch the video for “Slow Fade” now at FADER.

Song For Alpha will be released April 6 on Phantasy/Mute in the United States and Canada and via Phantasy for the rest of the world. This new album follows Avery’s 2013 debut, Drone Logic, which was received with praise across the electronic music press upon its release. Preorder Song For Alpha here. Discounted album and EP formats available when purchasing tickets to Avery’s tour here.

The glacial animated video for “Slow Fade” was created by Flat-e, the London design studio that has previously helmed videos and live visuals for the likes of Jon Hopkins, Nathan Fake, Jamie Lidell and Clark. Reflecting on the video, Flat-e had this to say:

“To create the video for ‘Slow Fade’ we used a combination of techniques. Our idea was to create something structural with no tangible sense of scale and then to degrade the footage throughout the video (a slow fade). We wanted to create something akin to watching chemical reactions or seeing the start of nuclear fusion in slow motion at macro level. 

Initially we photographed and filmed actual glass structures in our studio in Tottenham. Glass seemed to be the most suitable material for the music. This source material was taken in 3d software (cinema 4d) and rebuilt into a virtual sculpture. We created a number of animations and imported them into visual package VDMX to create varying degrees of digital feedback effects. We wanted to create something which looked a little like re-recorded VHS footage but we wanted to keep the resolution high enough to really see all the details in the distortion. Using real-time effects was key as it allowed us to be very hands on, we cherished all the mistakes and glitches it threw back at us and hopefully it gave the video some soul to boot.”

Song For Alpha is Avery’s exploration of the space in which home listening and club music intersect, in no small part inspired by his transient life spent between nightclubs, flights, the passenger seats of cars and hotel rooms.

With newfound energy and time to develop, his sonic vocabulary has expanded. Here, the booming sound of the big room is brilliantly countered by the music of the small hours. Where celestial ambient lullabies “First Light” and “Days From Now” sit perfectly next to the mesmeric techno assault of “Diminuendo” and “Sensation;” where both “Projector” and “Clear” evoke early rave records, only ones engulfed by waves of beautiful cyclonic distortion. William Basinski, Warp’s Artificial Intelligence, Brian Eno plus his own excursions with Alessandro Cortini all serve as touchstones for a record that sees Avery take his signature psychedelic-electronic sound to new dimensions, a sound that plays to the head as much as the body.

Says Avery: “I’ve become increasingly interested in those moments in a club when the outside world becomes little more than an inconsequential thought at the back of your head. Eyes closed as opposed to hands in the air. A light emerging from the darkness – this is the idea I repeatedly returned to in the studio. The more time you spend with it the deeper you fall.”
