TUNE Military Genius - When I Close My Eyes
War-torn industrial, experimental jazz, and visceral ambience are unified under the banner of Military Genius, an audiovisual outlet that mirrors the political and existential turmoil of our times. Spreading a message of peace amidst the turbulence, Military Genius blends free-form noise and rigid composition, producing abstract, meditative representations of real-life experience.
'When I Close My Eyes' is the second official single from debut LP “Deep Web”, releasing early 2020 via Unheard of Hope.
Sonically, the piece blends disparate influences from the electronic punk minimalism of Suicide, to the rushing horns of Mingus Ah Um, to the immersive ambience of Arthur Russell. Euphoric saxophone moves through a disorienting haze of noise, crashing between distorted club rhythms and shape-shifting jazz. Altered consciousness ventures outwards to reach a state of transcendence, disintegrating into silence, a central movement within the album’s spiritual journey.
