British artist Jez Creek, better known as Modulator ESP, brings his experimental synthesis project over to this side o’ the pond to kick off OTP’s Fall series of events.

Modulator ESP produces improvised experimental soundscapes using synthesizers, sampling, sequencing, looping and processing to create strange worlds of sound somewhere between 70s space music, noise, and dark ambient drone, and is fond of proclaiming that he spends far too much of time on production and sound design. In the case of the sonic end result, however, that is indeed a good thing: Modulator ESP music is that rare breed, a twist on recognizable genre templates that ensures it doesn’t fit comfortably in any given one. What made the early Euro pioneers so utterly convincing and provocative in their day was their ability to carve out sounds hitherto unheard of before — Creek’s music is full-on dejá vu, suggestive of his forebear’s alien cartographies without outright mimicking them. Although rhythms can be discerned amongst his studio and live creations, more often than not Creek tends to sublimate the obvious into what is often an amorphous, shape-shifting, extraordinarily colorful tapestry of finessed texture, expertly matched to the sinuous hues that inform his equally arresting visuals.

Creek’s listening habits encompass a wide range of music, and it shows: bits and pieces of stylistic flotsam, from ambient electronica to all manners of prog and, in his words, “weird” music, crop up throughout virtually any Modulator ESP track or performance. Fellow electronic transmitters such as Jean Michel Jarre, Radio Massacre International, Redshift, and Tangerine Dream inform his myriad influences, but truth be told, Modulator ESP is its own unique animal, the sounds Creek engineers live muddying the electronic waters to yield some beautifully engulfing and deeply imagistic waveforms.
