London-based artist Jake Chudnow is up next on Glyph Recordings with a two-track release entitled ‘Columbia’

Jake Chudnow is an electronic music producer, drummer and video/filmmaker, originally from Philadelphia. ‘Columbia’ is his first release of new music in over five years, following on from his debut release entitled ‘Shona’ on Bloc back in 2015, which has since picked up over 2 million streams on Spotify alone and received support from the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs, Dominik Eulberg, and Joris Voorn on release.

The musical intent of Columbia is to inspire the listener to feel removed from their daily patterns and habits. A feeling that brings the listener into a headspace where they are able to pay attention to things they would have otherwise missed. This makes for an opportune collaboration with Beauty of Science (beautyofscience.com/) who’s videos show the viewer how absolutely stunning the world can be if they have the tools or revelation to look at it in a new way. Their work creates a sense of curiosity, awe, and wonder, and inspires questions about what the world is made of and the stuff that makes us.

In Columbia, the Beauty of Science footage is assembled to tell the story of the early formation of the earth, mixing of the elements, sprouting of life, and finally human creativity. Where new elements are introduced to create a beautiful disruption. As if the chemicals on screen as well as the listeners’ sensual awareness are reacting to the music like a substance does when a new chemical is introduced.
