Module (born Jeremiah Ross) is a musician and composer. He has created music for film and video games as well as releasing his own albums, most recently 2012’s Imagineering. See here for a list of his work – including the soundtrack to the video game, Shatter. Here are five albums he’s loving right now…
1 – Craig Armstrong, Piano Works: Beautiful and subtle and emotional, I really like the treatment on the piano. Some glitchy cut-up things and processing, ambient. I listen to this a bit still even though it’s older now. I guess it’s a touchstone for me.
2 – Air, Pocket Symphony: One of my favourite albums actually, its moody and mellow, almost midnight-music, and the layers of production and sounds are stunning. It’s slightly strange which I find interesting, totally love the track Photograph – the lyrics are really funny, like the ultimate pick-up line, you’re so hot god whats your autograph and the angels are waiting to stare at your picture…love it.
3 – Goyte, Making Mirrors: I like this because of the story behind it, the dude hanging out on his own in his loneliness, creating beautiful work and then there being such an international reaction to his music, he sounds like Sting a bit and his cross mix of retro futures mixed with emotionally blurred landscapes really stick out to me as something awesome and the album as a whole is great.
4 – Rhian Sheehan, Stories From Elsewhere: As someone who really knows Rhian very well, watching him transition over the last 10 years from what he use to do into what he is doing now I can only share respect and admiration for him along with everyone else who does. To be so brave and bold to create something really beautiful, his music has become emotionally textural; it really resonates across many different layers and his production and mixing skills are top class. I am very proud of him.
5 – David Bowie, The Next Day: I friggin love this album, David Bowie came into my life via the Labyrinth when I was younger and watching it again recently I realised how much of an impact that soundtrack must have had on me, that blend of 80s synth musicand epic lead guitar solos and drama…totally love it but this album seems to touch on all styles of his work but older and dustier. Where Are We Now almost makes me man cry.
