Space Adaptation Syndrome (EP)

Released February 4, 2021

Written and produced by Michael Bargen
Arrangement, mixing and mastering by Michael Bargen

Space Adaptation Syndrome is a 2021, four-song EP released by Michael Oscillate. This project, like others in the Oscillate catalogue, uses wonderfully crafted drones as a firm foundation to overlay an array of eye-catching rhythmic elements that seamlessly transition from one to the next. In what could be considered a more accessible introduction to the genre of (dark ambient), Space Adaptation Syndrome expresses the general themes prevalent in other more audacious works in a more palatable manner, with more predictable rhythm and noticeable melody. All of this combined establishes a more inviting arena in which outsiders to this style of music are able to enter in and fully submerge themselves in the sedating soundscapes that Oscillate offers, in a way that is approachable while remaining authentic to its heritage. The closingtrack, Journey into the Unknown, is a particularly melodic piece in the context of Oscillate’s broader discography – but still has all the technical ability and creativity we have come to expect from this artist.
