Joel Ebner, who you may know as the mind behind Alt Rising Act City States, has released a new album under his new project Contretemps.
He describes his debut record, Pronouncement, as "my debut as Contretemps and the second release via my new Chicago label Safety Records...a solo undertaking from me which expands upon the more adventurous instrumental moments from the first City States album. Fans of Oneohtrix Point Never, Fennesz, and Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works II will hopefully enjoy it."
We recently had the chance to talk with Joel about his new label and his ambient-electronic release. Read our interview below and get inside the mind of Contretemps.
