Scattered Thoughts Gathering – “Prophet 6 Selfie”


The third single from Bulgarian project Scattered Thoughts Gathering, “Prophet 6 Selfie” showcases a mesmerizing, experimental electronic voyage through both understated nostalgia and eerie space-set pursuits. Aptly, considering the track title, all the synth sounds within were crafted on a Prophet 6 synthesizer. Intriguing synth warbles complement a stirring vocal presence to start, emitting an otherworldly frequency amongst pleading “please help me,” vocal soaring.

Rhythmic click-clacking and a buzzing synth spaciness takes hold past the first minute, concocting a sci-fi immersion into glistening keys and an assortment of other tonal pursuits; the steady array of varying keys and synths make for a constant enthrallment throughout, as the vocals remain temporary absent. Their striking re-emergence follows a hectic rhythmic assortment over the colorful synth work, concocting a creative invigoration reminiscent of Oneohtrix Point Never. “Prophet 6 Selfie” is a stirring, creatively atmospheric showcase from Scattered Thoughts Gathering.

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

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
