Jason Urick's 2012 LP I Love You depicts the Earth as seen from outer space. I'm thinking he took the photo himself. Urick calls Portland home, but his music remains otherworldly. And while his soundscapes are, for the most part, abstract and drone-y, there are melodies in there. One thing I've heard him say is that he considers himself more of a music fan than a musician. I like that. So often the human element gets lost in electronic music. Urick's philosophy makes him less mad scientist and more human, and it adds even more weight to his already weighty computer-generated music. Maybe he's more down to Earth than I thought. MARK LORE
