Introducing: AN ANT AND AN ATOM

AN ANT ND AN ATOM - There Is No OneAN ANT AND AN ATOM is Sean Warkentine, currently based in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada although I believe he has also lived and worked in Seoul, South Korea. Coming from a background of hardcore  and punk (a man after my own heart!) he eventually gravitated away, seeking new and less ‘monotonous’ (his word, not mine …. how could he?!) means of expressing his music.

Listening to his latest EP ‘There Is No One,’ coupled with some earlier works on Soundcloud, I think it quite obvious that AN ANT AND AN ATOM is tailored for the Film Industry, and Sean has in fact confirmed that he has worked on both short and feature-length movie projects. (‘Great Big Lights Out‘ is an interesting watch)

On ‘There is No One‘, the 5-song EP draws upon various styles: drone (‘I Eat Hearts for a Month’); minimal classical (‘She Said She Couldn’t Change It, Then She Changed It, Then She Changed It Again’); lo-fi synth (‘Starlets that Disembowel‘) and downtempo dance (‘If You Try, I’ll Run Away From You‘). Influenced by modern electronic and ambient artists such as Max Richter, Tim Hecker, Oneohtrix Point Never, M83, and the like, the backbone for this release is a 2011 heartbreak and the short time following in which the songs were completed, the timeline visible in the visceral song titles.
