T. Gowdy’s new album Therapy With Colour will be available in fine independent record stores on 21 August, and as its street date approaches we wanted to give a proper introduction to the producer and sound artist behind this collection of deeply satisfying, forward-thinking instrumental electronic tracks.

Although Therapy With Colour is T. Gowdy’s Constellation debut, he has an extensive musical background spanning a wide range of genres and styles. Gowdy got his start in choral music and classical guitar before pursuing graduate studies in sound recording, and over the past 12 years he has accrued production and engineering credits on over 60 albums. As a live performer, he’s played at a variety of acclaimed events across North America and Europe including MUTEK (Montréal, Barcelona), Pico Union Project (L.A.) and Spektrum (Berlin).

To get a better grasp of T. Gowdy’s unique musical sensibilities, peruse his list of favourite releases from the Constellation catalog below and discover why each album resonated with him. Learn more about this rising electronic innovator on his artist page and explore his previous work on Bandcamp.

 

Those Who Walk Away • The Infected Mass

“It is one of my favourite albums ever produced. I feel like it’s beyond what music can be considered to be. I am humbled by Matthew Patton’s level of restraint in these compositions. I would take this album to a desert island.”


 
 

Jerusalem In My Heart • If He Dies, If If If If If If

“When I saw JIMH play Berlin in 2016 I had an out of body experience. I knew logically that I was watching a performance of something but wasn’t able to articulate what this visceral experience was.

Hearing this music four years later, it is still transcending.”


 
 

JOYFULTALK • Plurality Trip

“Everything is just going sideways on this record and it feels like fresh air, but like you’re breathing lab-synthesized oxygen. The funny thing is that you catch glimpses of a genre but it really evades well. Always skirting the mind’s gaze, a new pattern emerges on every listen.”


 
 

Colin Stetson • New History Warfare Vol.3: To See More Light

“Colin Stetson is grasping my soul with both hands and asking me to acknowledge the spirits he has summoned. Shamanic? Yes. And not once does his hyper-technical style of circular breathing through the saxophone shroud my belief that his message comes from the purest place.”


 
 

Efrim Manuel Manuck • Pissing Stars

“This vision is so singular that its therapeutic to surrender, put down your things and nod. I see this collection as crooked hymns tied together by murky pedal tones. It’s rebirth and resistance holding hands.”
