listen to automata organa by adam fligsten
- automata organa Adam Fligsten 3:09
automata organa combines a live string section with modern electronic instruments in a way that simultaneously feels fresh and classic. The album, Retro Optimism will follow, expanding upon this goal by combining an 80's "retro" sensibility with very modern production styles and a live orchestra.
"I have been on many projects that felt rushed or didn't have the full resources they deserved. For this one, I decided to take the time to get it 100% right and utilize the best available tools I could. I hired a 32-piece string section to record for the whole album, which I think is showcased quite well in this song."
Adam finds himself comfortably in the intersection between raw classicistic performances and heartfelt electronic sounds. He likes breaking down and reforming genres using modern tools to express ancient emotions.
"I want people to feel a sense of possibility for a positive future for the world, as difficult as it might be to get there. I would only hope that my music could provide a sense of solidarity to someone out there. As artists, that is the best we can hope for."
