Ambient composer Julia Gjertsen has put together a palette of ivory hues in her new single ‘Undo’, which she has shared as a part of Deep Heads’ forthcoming compilation promotion. This latter project will see the light on the 26th of May.
Warming up the keys, Julia begins the record by flitting between notes, finding order in the chaos, slowing the notes from a scattering to a rhythmic cadence. Then she introduces a flute, giving the track a somewhat oriental feeling, before saturating the composition in a detached bass, adding body.
Julia Gjertsen speaks on her nuanced approach to composing ‘Undo’: “I dedicated a lot of time to refining and experimenting with the track, exploring the relationship between different sounds and textures. The concept of ‘undoing’ and starting anew was particularly appealing to me, and I believe that is what this track is trying to reflect.”
