Captain Earwax - Cloud Steppe

Captain Earwax - Cloud Steppe
Captain Earwax (a.k.a. Australian interdisciplinary artist Daniel O'Toole/EARS) crafts a rich kaleidoscope of aural landscapes with his unique brand of electronica. From a background in 90's Boom Bap production and vinyl-plus-hardware sampling, Earwax draws from a range of influences: folk, jazz, glitch, dub and hip hop all blending to build a broad global palette of instruments and textures. The manifesting sound is intricate, glitchy and melody-driven; a balance of live acoustic sounds, field recordings, handheld percussion, warm analogue synth tones and a plethora of quirky noise making toys.

His mesmerising and tactile live set blurs the wobbly lines of live electronic performance using an array of obscure acoustic instruments, synthesisers and live effects units all fusing together as he creates lovingly intricate and detailed worlds of sound.

Completing an international tour in 2018 supporting split/flip, (released with Kyoto based electronic act omni sight) Captain Earwax has performed across Australia at festivals including Perth Fringe World, Vivid Sydney and EMCPlay - following his appearance at EMCPlay Captain Earwax was handpicked by Giles Peterson to perform live at an exclusive broadcast on WorldWide FM at Network Connection Records.

About this track...

Cloud Steppe as a title combines references to the steppes of Mongolia (a term used for the bare grasslands of the Gobi desert) and the feeling of being in the clouds when you’re there. I found the feeling of elevation at high altitude in the Gobi quite startling and beautiful, the clouds feel low and enlarged, it's really surreal.
