CULTIVATED SOUND EP RELEASE JULY 2021 
‘REBELLION’

Maŕa, experimental artist and founder of the hybrid collective/label, Cultivated Sound, will be releasing a music video, and coinciding EP, for their single "Rebellion". The track, originally released in a compilation by Silent Servant and Rrose called Air Texture VII, will be re-released alongside remixes by LDY OSC and S. English.

Visually, “Rebellion” is subjective, giving the viewers an individual experience by creating their own story or relationship with Maŕa from the outside. The film also examines Maŕa’s relationship with the viewer as represented by the camera. Her sound is a synthesis of deep, complex atmospheres and punchy rhythms tinged with dance-floor grit. Blurring the lines between ambient, experimental music, and deep bass rhythm, Maŕa’s expertise in sound now has a graphic landscape in the form of her own haunting, virtual oasis.

Special Interest Group is the first compilation to be released on Cultivated Sound, featuring tracks from both experimental artists, ambient, and dance music artists locally in New York and internationally.

“Special Interest Group” represents a post-utopian vision on forming a community of artists that narrates the experience of traveling to an imaginary reality, sharing a collective interest in expanding the listener's perception of sound by experimenting and advancing sound from machines and acoustic instruments. By inputting information, creating an environment to learn, collaborate, reflect and address ideas to each other. This compilation showcases Cultivated Sound’s aesthetic and pursues in sound, also is a tribute to the place that can be inhabited but is nevertheless a mirage.
The three tape album is mastered by Ryan Wurst, featuring artwork and photography by Tayla Roberge. A limited version of 100 copies will be released as a special art edition in collaboration with PASP, releasing both physically and digitally.
