Silhouetted Horizons is the brainchild of Benjamin Hurd, who’s already a well-renowned sound designer and engineer in the highly specialized world of fine art. His work has been showcased at prestigious events and venues such as the Locarno Film Festival, The Venice Biennale, Tate Modern, The British Art Show, The Berlin Biennale, deYoung, Bonniers, The Serpentine, ICA, and various collaborations with Nike.
He’s put his talent on displays most recently in his brand new single “Overtone”, a thrilling blend of downtempo, wave, and with a bit of trap fused together in a cinematic fashion. The vocal samples bear hallmark of other great talents such as Odesza and Slow Magic, while staying unique to Silhoutted Horizons in how he manipulates them to elevate the song.
“I tried to draw on the entirety of my influences, old and new, when writing “Overtone” – There is an intentionally (new) retro electronica feel that really pulls from trailblazer artists such as The Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Orbital or Leftfield but framed in the same type of reimagining you hear in a lot of the future garage and bass music nostalgia going on right now.”
