One of the founding members of altopalo, RⱯHM ⚉ is endeavoring on his own solo project. The new single “semiautomatical” gives a taste of what his forthcoming debut album has to offer.
RⱯHM ⚉’s explained, “for a lot of the album i was thinking about the dare I say curious current scenario of being a human animal in an outrageously augmented planet. being a primal fleshy thing in a civilized, digitized world. ‘semiautomatical’ is a non-word that i was using to refer to this kind of halfness. closeness and farness simultaneously. watching other people have sex on the internet. love in the anthropocene. blah blah you get it. but it’s more ambiguous than ‘wow this is fucked the bots are taking over my brainstem.’ it’s the feeling of sticking your hand out the window of a moving car and letting your palm pitch and dive with the wind. knowing that even on the highway humanity thrives.”
