Symbion Project
(Feat. Briana Marela)
“Stainless Endless Radiance”

Considering one of Kasson Crooker’s recent gigs was sculpting “spatial audio experiences for the Microsoft HoloLens,” it should come as no surprise that the ever-so-blurred line between virtual and visceral worlds is explored at length on his eighth Symbion Project LP. Due out September 9th through Speed of Dark Music, Arcadian brings a pop bent to Crooker’s skittish IDM beats thanks to such featured singers as Jenni Potts (see also: the Odesza single “White Lies”), Markus Junnikkala (from the Finish band MY), and occasional cocktail critic Briana Marela. The recurring Amiina/múm collaborator stars in today’s #selftitledpremiere, which Crooker describes as follows:

I first heard Briana Marela’s lovely vocals when she performed at Seattle’s Decibel Festival and knew instantly we should collaborate on a song. She has such a unique quality to her voice and layered vocal treatments, that instantly captures the listeners imagination.
