In the February Issue of Dazed & Confused, Los Angeles-based producer RYAT enlisted as part of our ‘University of Yorke’ series featuring 14 electronic producers who posed their personal questions to our coverstar, Radiohead and Atoms For Peace frontman Thom Yorke.
Having made first impressions by landing on Flying Lotus’ illustrious Brainfeeder label, RYAT makes gritty avant-garde beats as can be heard in the exclusive premiere of the new video for her track ‘Owl’ (above). Experimenting with classical and cinematic sounds with unexpected time signatures, her leftfield approach to music means merging her own processed vocals to create intense and abstract artforms. The video for the track ‘Owl’ is taken from her album ‘Totem’ where every track was a representation of a different spirit animal. Currently, she’s embarking on a film project called ‘Light Soldier’, an avant-garde short featuring Angel Deradoorain (Dirty Projectors) and Gonjasufi where the score will form her next LP.
