Moonlets | Ben Q Best
A split release of Utah Valley ambient experiments by Moonlets and Ben Q Best.
Orem-based Andrew Aguilera’s Moonlets side is a heavily directed and focused exploration driven mainly by sleep deprivation and isolation. The melodic connection to his main project Mooninite can definitely be heard, but the sounds are deeper and more restrained. “The result of these experiments are very unique and woozy pieces of music that at times have a sort of paranoid atmosphere that helped articulate the feeling of my early 2013 year.” - Moonlets
Ben Q Best’s side takes things in a more lo-fi, and at times course, direction built from loops driven by guitar, synthesizer, and tapes. This material, collected from nearly 2 hours of recordings, can be seen as the bridge between Ben’s experimental work with Karl Jørgensen and his own singer/songwriter project.
