“compulse” is a collection of (mostly) pulse-driven microtonal/xenharmonic tracks produced in 2010-2011.

Compulse by skiks, reverse cover

Quirky infectious hooks, fields of distortion, ambient soundscapes, and chamber music textures rub shoulders in an adventure with some surprising turns. Tunings are often mixed, producing a kind of heterophonous pitch space; other times one tuning or scale is explored with focus. The track list is designed for album style listening.

“skiks” is an electronica project of composer/percussionist Bruce Hamilton.
