Out of stock

2019 Small Repress. Ecstatic finally issue Abul Mogard's modular landscape paintings on 'Circular Forms' a suite of 4 analogue synth pieces. Unfolding through a 40 minute synthesiser suite in four parts, 'Circular Forms' is one of the most captivating examples of Mogard's deeply evocative music, drawing out a sort of direct emotional quality from his limited set-up of Farfisa organs and a self-built modular system.
Abul Mogard was born in Belgrade, Serbia and spent most of his life working in a metal factory. He approached music only in old age after his retirement. Following two highly regarded cassette releases on Steve Moore and Anthony Paterra's VCO Recordings label, and a series of compilations and split releases, Abul Mogard makes a surprising departure on this debut album for Ecstatic Recordings. 'Circular Forms' channels a wealth of soulful modular explorations and shadowy white-noise clouds. The ending result is evocative, unsettling and beguiling modern synth music. There's a real emotive essence to his - almost lyrical - arrangements which is very much removed from the Modular revivalism that's been dominant over the last few years. Composed and recorded in solitude using a limited equipment array of Farfisa organs in conjunction with a self-built modular synthesiser, the album's intoxicating distortions and extreme low frequencies translate into personal space and beautifully restrained impressions.

Abul Mogard: "Lately I have been reading and appreciating visual art and paintings and this has informed my work on this album. Compared to my previous albums, this was the first time that I had a clear visual representation of my music, as geometrical forms - each element of a track suggested a form that intertwined with the other elements".
