Smokey Emery - Soundtracks for Invisibility Vol. III

As of 7/15/14 Smokey Emery’s Soundtracks for Invisibility Vol. III: Qui Mal y Pense (HD023) is shipping worldwide on cassette and digital – grab an analog or ephemeral copy at the our STORE or bandcamp.

While we here at HOLODECK are more than fond of Smokey Emery’s cannon of work, kind words from the outside world have already poured in for Smokey’s third installment of his enigmatic Soundtracks series, here are a few:

On its path from his headspace to the play head of your tape deck, the music that Hipólito makes under the Smokey Emery moniker bears witness to years of collection, recombination, and field recording — all in pursuit of more raw material to mulch through creative processes and sympathetic machines into versions of that first experience.Tiny Mix Tapes

…despondent in the best way possible, as a solitary drone shambles along, with subtle bits of effects and reverb that are earth-shaking and downright foreboding.” – Decoder

Nomadic ambient that transcends time and place.”IMPOSE

Premiere: Smokey Emery’s “Afore” on Tiny Mix Tapes

Smokey Emery's "Afore"

The one & only Tiny Mix Tapes was brave enough to premiere the abstract, lucid, and ceaselessly transmorphing imagery from Smokey Emery’s music video for Afore (by Portland-based Jennifer Sindon), a cut off of his newly reissued Soundtracks for Invisibility Vol. III: Qui Mal y Pense (HD023, ed. of 200 cassettes).

Unlike anything we’ve ever seen, the video captures the ever-changing essence which Smokey Emery (aka Daniel Hipólito) imprints into his wandering audio-journals under his enigmatic moniker with (trippy-as-hell) visuals as our guide. HOLODECK is proud to reissue Smokey Emery’s Soundtracks for Invisibility Vol. III on the format which suits it most accurately: tape.

Soundtracks is shipping worldwide as of 7/15/14. Head to the HOLO STORE to grab a copy.
