MTR001 - 7FO - Moment
[Selected Works 2012-2018]

Métron Records are delighted to present their debut label release from Osaka based producer 7FO. With tracks, recorded between 2012 and 2017, all have been tweaked, remastered and recorded to vinyl for the first time.

The mysterious figure recorded the tracks at home, processing guitar sounds, using a sampler, synthesizer and junk equipment. Following in the footsteps of the ambient giants of his native lands, 7FO’s music continues this illustrious heritage whilst offering something fresh, modern and beautifully rendered. He describes his own sound as ‘gorgeous sustained tones and dreamlike oscillations that drift through the inorganic/electronic world reverberating through our subconscious creating sonic fables in our minds’.

The sublime 12’’ comes with artwork designed by label head & visual artist Jack Hardwicke. To accompany the release Greek filmmaker George Kountouras, who also collaborated on the artwork, has directed a gorgeous video for the title track ‘Moment’.

Copies still available here:

The music video below was directed by Greek filmmaker and Métron collaborator George Kountouras. His gorgeous analog visuals, created by manipulating VHS signals, perfectly compliment 7FO’s strange yet sublime sonic palette.
