Experimental club music to put you in a dreamlike state.
Disruption showcases Sarkissian's distinctive style. Her sound revolves around non-Western samples, often paying homage to her Armenian heritage. She's previously worked on film soundtracks and the statement on Club Chai's Bandcamp that the EP is a "soundtrack to an imagined fictional film inspired by stories of Armenian mythology" nicely frames the EP. But even without reading that text, there's a cinematic drama in most of the tracks. There are heavy beats running through most of the EP, but it doesn't pound like some club music does. Instead, it seems crafted to induce a dreamlike state.
It's an inventive approach with mixed results. The droning opener, "A Ceremony (For Arax)" is pretty forgettable, but it's made up for by the next track, "Greeted by Tir (Տիր)," which layers a collage of beautifully eerie samples over an ominous kick drum. "Gnum" is even dreamier, thanks to the looped, echoey vocals sampled from an Armenian folk song. The standout track is "The Wave's Recountal." It's majestic and slow moving, built on heavy, procession-like drums. You can easily imagine it as the soundtrack to a fantasy film—or game, as someone demonstrated by putting it over a clip from the video game Destiny.
