AUTORHYTHM – “Intercellular Communication”


A hypnotic Kraut-rock nostalgia and thumping electro-minded pulse enamor throughout “Intercellular Communication,” a new track from Stockholm-based project AUTORHYTHM. The project of Joakim Forsgren arose in 2015, after a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease. Forsgren embraced analogue music technology and improvisational composing thereafter, creating beautiful music in spite of newly presented challenges.

“Intercellular Communication” firmly captivates with a satiating, evolving sound. A sonar-like synth line and bouncy rhythmic backing makes for a playful opening, as grimy synth buzzing appears sporadically — embracing further past the first minute. A slight uptick in percussive involvement complements the driving, sonar-ready steadiness in the second half, as clanging synth quality intrigues into the thickly reverberating fade-out. “Intercellular Communication” succeeds in its hypnotic rhythmic backing and atmospheric synth usage, forming a track with enduring appeal.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of April 2023’ Spotify playlist.
