Having discovered the musical work of 36 a couple of years ago (coof year), I have found the music he creates to have been an integral part of my life now. I find this release to be like you are part of the experience and it seems immediately accessable whether you are at home or traveling. The journey seemingly both inward and outward at the same time if there is such a thing as time...
Favorite track: Room 5 (Reinterpreted).
tbh, I even like this version more! 36 is just magical! your music always takes me to stunning sensory trips (although happening only in my head) but oh boi do I hallucinate, daydream and stare into space in trance
Gives me powrr! 😃
Favorite track: Room 9 (Reinterpreted).
'The Infinity Room' was originally released in 2016 on A Strangely Isolated Place. It was the catalyst for an exciting new direction in the 36 sound and remains one of the most popular albums in the 36 discography. Fast-forward to 2022 and 3six Recordings is pleased to present 'The Infinity Room (Reinterpreted by 36)' which revisits the album, albeit with a surprising twist.
Originally envisioned as a live version of 'The Infinity Room', it eventually grew into a unique re-imagining of the entire album, with every track deconstructed and rebuilt from the ground-up. Taking the core melodies from the original LP, produced alongside new sounds and arrangements, this reinterpretation showcases a dynamic new vision for the album, with increased energy and urgency. Whereas the original album was an exercise in synthesizer minimalism, this reinterpretation expands the range of sounds considerably. It doesn't remove the magic that made the original album so special for many people. It re-contextualizes it with new colour.
'The Infinity Room' played with the idea that a single artistic decision in the studio would eventually blossom into something grander. The initial stems of the very first track directly influenced the direction for everything that followed. What was created in 2016 was just one possible outcome. This is another. To be clear; This was not made to replace the original album. It is simply another possibility in a multiverse of opportunities. Among the many worlds, perhaps this is the one you feel most at home.
released August 2, 2022
Thank you to Ryan from ASIP for taking a chance with the original album and for his blessing with this one.
