Stroboscopic Artefacts

The black-and-white horticultural infused motifs that grace the center labels of Stroboscopic Artefacts (SA) records, place particular emphasis upon music as a messenger of organic evolution and although hinting at a metamorphic capability,  there is an evident fixation on growth, focusing on evolution as oppose to revolution.  SA is a champion of sound as agnostic, non-orthogonal architecture that provides a welcoming accompaniment to emotional on-screen content through its romancing of spatiality and depth. Founded by Luca Mortellaro (Lucy) in September 2009 and based in Berlin, SA withholds an incessant accretion of exploratory elements that transcend any self-limiting expectations of genres or cliques. Stroboscopic Artefacts therefore endures not because it is concerned with the defensive act of ‘surviving,’ but because it is consumed with determination to live a growth-oriented life and to accompany others in their personal quests towards the same. From an anamorphic and immersive perspective the label provides expansive guttural compositions and is often compared with exemplars and industry catalysts like Warp and Basic Channel. Whilst SA’s releases certainly share some of the same sonic DNA as those imprints, it is SA's forensic levels of attention to detail and commitment to development that provide a clear differentiator from its torchbearers and peers.
