CMU Approved

Approved: Qrion

By | Published on Monday 13 July 2015


Producer, remixer and occasional Ryan Hemsworth collaborator Qrion has just released the video for ‘Nothing’, the closing track from her debut EP ‘Q’. She having been rather prolific on SoundCloud, the EP release collects a number of older tracks: ‘Sink’, ‘Beach’ and last year’s brilliant ‘2u’.

‘Nothing’ is a simple, but thoroughly effective production. Led by a looped piano riff, various layers are added, often almost imperceptibly, to envelop you in its hypnotic sound (my favourite part being the brief addition of a sharp intake of breath as percussion), before dropping back to that piano riff on its own to close.

It’s two and a half minutes of music, but does so much in that time without obviously doing very much at all. And the accompanying visuals are also pretty captivating, check out those and the music here:
