POLYΦONIC / Sprightly
Saber Rider is a somewhat ambient, somewhat pop one-woman project that focuses on sampling techniques and their semi improvisational arrangements that eventually merge into an amalgamation of memory-like collages. Sprightly is an EP that comprises of tracks recorded between late 2019 and mid 2020, a generally confusing time that led to exploring fragmented samples from jams with other people, accidentally discovering interesting sounds from 80s toy equipment much like in previous releases, and trying to make sense out of an Electron Octatrack to no avail. Here you can listen to Transmission, the first
track created from this release, a song written on a strange night that I received some pretty bad news that I couldnʼt do much about - make what you will with this information and thanks for listening x
All instruments and samples recorded, mixed & artwork by Saber Rider.
