Cosmo Sheldrake- The Fly

Sound is my religion.

Today’s post poses to generations the question, “what in the world is music, really?” Cosmo Sheldrake falls into so many genres- folk, sampling, electronica, sound art- that he has seems to have arrived from a different plane of existence altogether. I don’t intend to sanctify the boy, but holy Moses, he’s somethin’ else. This 22-year-old solo and independently produced artist is the son of the renowned biochemist, Rupert Sheldrake. This background perhaps gives insight to how his music so impossibly fires the synapses with it’s complex and formulaic sound. Is this the sound of our generation? Following in the footsteps of indie folk artists who try their darndest to stay true to the pure instrumental simplicity of traditional folk, Cosmo Sheldrake embraces the technology of our computer-bound generation and reinvents the contemporary version of the genre. I am weak with respect for this individual.
