R. Girardin's Emotional Music is a is a contemporary rendering of synthetic midi-fusion and DAW experimentalism. Drawing links between Rashad Becker's textured compositional approach and the multicultural electro-fetishism of Benjamin Lew (Tuxedomoon), Girardin uses the synthesizer as a spiritual instrument, where the typical motifs of musicality and style degrade in favor of poetic modulation and breath-controlled hopefuls. Emotional Music is a synthesis of both the human and synthesizer's expressive logics; one of internal architectures capable only through external inlets and outlets. Based in Los Angeles, Girardin has previously released music on the Italian label Hundebiss and has contributed to the score of Invernomuto's film Vers L'Europa Deserta, Terra Incognita. Emotional Music is a co-release between NYC's Palto Flats and LA label Zero Grow.
