Dark, pulsating compositions indebted to the occult but also to a wide-ranging technological curiosity. Cora Novoa’s melodic techno cuts find their happy medium between the haunting and the sublime, shaking off all foreseeable musical outcomes by dissecting new wave and synth pop patterns and thrusting the sounds into an intuitive maelstrom of modular synthesis.
