The Subtext head's second album is scheduled for a February release.
Continuum is the second full-length from Jebanasam, and like the first, 2013's Rites, it'll come through the Subtext label he operates alongside James Ginzburg and Roly Porter. As you might expect from a Subtext release, Continuum comes with a particularly bold statement of intent. According to the label, the album is "a speculative soundtrack to a timeline stretching from the primordial emergence of organic life through to the unknowable trajectory of the universe," one that "explores the magnitude of science's reach and the precarious role of humanity within this vast evolving system."
Jebanasam premiered the project as a collaborative audiovisual performance with noted visual artist Tarik Barri at Berlin Atonal earlier this year.
The album comprises three tracks and around 40 total minutes of music. With an image of a fusion reactor from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (the UK's national laboratory for such research) serving as cover artwork, it'll come on vinyl, CD and digital formats.
2015 has been another slow but steady year for Subtext. The label released a full-length from Yair Elazar Glotman and a new Emptyset EP, while also reissuing that duo's 2009 self-titled album.
