Isaac Helsen is a Detroit, Michigan based ambient artist and co-founder of respected electronic record label, Past Inside the Present. Having released a collaborative album with zaké, ‘beliefsystems’ on PITP this past June, Isaac now comes to El Muelle Records with ‘Burning House.’

This 7-song album turns Isaac’s focus away from guitar, highlighting analog synth and field recordings. His vision was to veer away from comfort and explore new processes of composition, with a greater focus on detailed sound design and arrangement. The beginning stages of this album date back to 2017 when Isaac began to develop a greater connection between photography and music, realizing this was a way to naturally spark new musical ideas. The album’s field recordings are re-used and processed differently throughout the seven pieces, representing repetitive and distorted thought processing. ‘Burning House’ leaves the listener with simultaneous residues of darkness and comfort, the recurring themes like blankets in the cold.
