Norwegian Producer Andre Bratten Continues His Signature Moody Electronic Music on ‘Pax Americana’
“I’ve always been fascinated by how a sound can make you feel, without being something you can touch. I’ve always been more interested in sounds than music.” Anyone who hears the music of Andre Bratten would probably not be surprised by that quotation of his. The music he creates conveys more of a mood than standard compositional structure. Hooks are largely eschewed in favor of drones and long, sustained chords. Big blocks of sound are placed on top of dance beats, creating a distinct, satisfying feel but hardly something you can hum along with.
