The Raster-Noton act's next LP takes inspiration from the arcade classic.
Cologne-based artist Senking will release his next album, Pong, this September on Raster-Noton.
As its title suggests, Senking's new LP is inspired by the classic 2-D ball-and-paddle game. Just how that arcade staple influenced the sounds of the record isn't exactly clear, but according to a press release, Pong shows Senking playing with "stretched dubstep rhythms" complete with sub-basslines, hints of melody and atmospheres that evoke Angelo Badalamenti's soundtracks to David Lynch films. All of the songs are previously unreleased, though Senking debuted many of them at Club Transmediale earlier this year in Berlin. In true Raster-Noton fashion, there's more to the CD than just music: a 3-D "interpretation" of the original Pong is included in the data portion of the disc.
