Danish composer Rumpistol uses his music as a tool for exploring the connection between music and the natural beauty found in the physical world around us. This type of sonic curiosity has led to collaboration with artists such as MØ and John LaMonica. Today, Rumpistol is releasing Drops EP- his first full release in 3 years – which contains a myriad of emotion evoking sounds with an underlying water theme.
"While taking up swimming, and living in the rain-soaked city of Copenhagen, Rumpistol found himself exploring the sonic behaviors of one of our planets most vital elements."
Rumpistol slows it down on this EP in an attempt to sonically capture the fluidity of water from fast rushing currents to light drips of rain. The 6 tracks also contain an extensive landscape of various analog sounds to create this very serene feeling while still maintaining the bubbly playfulness that water can also instill. As boundless and far reaching as the oceans are, he utilizes various analog sounds while including a mixture of various African instruments like the kora and kalimba.

Rumpistol is holding a live premiere of Drops during a special performance at Burning Man this year in collaboration with an art installation named Tree of Ténéré – a grandiose tree structure outfitted with more than 25,000 LED-equipped leaves. A fitting collaboration of course.
