While doing my year-end round up, I stumbled across Epop Nivek on Bandcamp. Being a fan of experimental composers and songs, I put it on the backburner to check out, and as per usual, 2018 got busy to the point that I overlooked it. Recently, I rediscovered this project, and now it is imperative that I share Second Hand Processing with followers of this blog. In a world full of same-y sounding synthesizers and drum sounds, it’s interesting to hear someone take field recordings, ambient noise, instrumental and sonic snippets, and turn this vast array into a statement in the form of an album, let alone a song. If you’re an open-minded fan of music, this one is definitely worth looking in to.
