Avatar Blue 2
Spencer Clark is back with Vol.2 of his eco-friendly extravaganza Avatar Blue. Its life on earth as you never heard it.
The story goes like this: Spencer wanted to do a soundtrack for the yet to be made Avatar 2. And if you know Spencers work, youll know that he engaged on this mission reading material that influenced the rich and crazy imaginary world of Avatar. If you think about
it a little bit, something like Avatar could have really come out from the mind of Spencer Clark.
But it didnt. So, he dwelled around the idea of that soundtrack, working on what is now known as Avatar Blue. The record we now release is a selection he made from the 2CD released last year on his own Pacific City Sound Visions.
Like many of Spencers other alias or incarnations, Star Searchers introduces the listener to a new world. Besides making sounds/soundtracks for alternative realities he cares
about making a world for his music to live in. Its never superficial or dedicated just to the act of imagination, Spencer creates sounds that sustain the reality he imagined. Thats why theyre so rich and consequential in the realisation of music as a medium.
Avatar Blue is music but also literature. And cinema. Star Searchers sound creates an absorbent sound about whats happening in aquatic life. It goes beyond the perception of what weve seen or what weve known, its a neo-future aquatic life, with a world building structure and sounds and narratives that go along with it.
All done with a sound-aesthetics that could be described as slowed-down-trance, that fits 1980s synth nostalgia and dreams of sci-fi to come.
