Spanish producer Miguel Sar has been a purveyor of tough, no-nonsense techno since the mid-2000s, running his own Cyclical Tracks label and appearing on other imprints like Token, Semantica, and Psyk's Non Series. Sar returns to the latter for Chronicles of the Future, his second album and first since 2008's Contacto (NET28 002CD/LP). Includes download code. "I started this album simply writing a script, I think it is important that an album has a continuity that gives the album a cinematic sense, basically this must tell you a story. For this time I chose the topic of: 'the development of human evolution in the future.' I find it interesting to experiment with the sound and textures of classical music, but not with the idea of how to adapt a techno track with classical instruments, I prefer writing scores from scratch for each of the instruments and adapting synthesizers as part of that orchestra. I think that all this brings us an epic ingredient, that from the beginning I think it was the link between classical and techno music. Besides the classical music, I have been experimented with different kinds of recording and synthesis, also I created almost all the sounds from zero. I have included different fx sounds, developed it with techniques as morphing and overlapping layers of sound, all to setup the tracks with a complex and rich textures, but with care to not obtain something pasty. I worked a lot with 'the space' in the tracks, trying to place each sound in a particular three-dimensional situation with clean reverbs, also the feeling of 'tension' is highly significant in this work, but ultimately the most important thing has been to build on a script written -- as I said before -- so that the narrative is a fundamental part of the album."
