BlankFor.ms presents his first EP with Its Torso Smears Right As. BlankFor.ms, AKA Tyler Gilmore, creates otherworldly electronic tone poems full of repurposed pop samples and densely woven electronic textures. His pieces are as much locations as they are songs, hinting at dark reaches of the psyche.
Its Torso Smears Right As features lush harmonies and abstracted vocals. Gilmore's orchestral sensibilities are apparent in the array of organic and inorganic juxtapositions. The accompanying visuals were built using sound reactive programming and snippets of aged VHS tapes.
Gilmore has been a unique voice at the meeting point of instrumental music and electronic music for over a decade, and has worked with MacArthur winner Jason Moran, Grammy winner Cuong Vu, Jenny Hval, and Autre ne Veut.
