It’s difficult to describe Color Television’s sound in words. His upcoming full-length debut album, The Hadron Pond, blends jazz, ambient soundscapes, melodic noise, samples, and analog and digital sounds into a collage. But maybe it’s better for you to take a listen.
Hayden Beck, the man behind the vision, recorded the album this past winter here in Chicago. He avoided using a computer on this album for anything other than the recording process, and he later got it mastered at Experimental Sound Studio.
The music video for the track “It’s A Feeling” gives us a glimpse inside Beck’s mind alongside director Jared Netzel’s masterful video editing and cuts. The song also gives a taste of the album in three and a half minutes: groove hooks and layers of keyboards and ambient sounds stacked on top of sustained, soulful falsetto vocals.
