Call Super | IDM del siglo XXI

Como somos más de programar festivales que código, se nos escapa que “call super” es una funcionalidad de algunos lenguajes de programación informática. Seguramente el londinense Joseph Richmond Seaton, Call Super de nombre artístico, nos lo explicaría mejor. Tanto en su aclamado debut Suzi Ecto como en el reciente Arpo queda claro que lo suyo es una electrónica meticulosa, casi científica, en la que los detallitos son protagonistas y los sentimientos se transmiten en texturas binarias. Expresionista techno, han llegado a llamarle. Lo que está claro es que si fue el elegido para inaugurar Houndstooth, la división discográfica del mítico Fabric de Londres, es porque Call Super está escribiendo su propio código, único e irreemplazable.

ENG: We are more about programming festivals than code, but apparently “call super” is a tool in some programming languages to replicate and/or rewrite functions of similar objects. Or something like that. Joseph Richmond Seaton, from London, whose artistic name is Call Super would definitely explain it better. There must be a reason why it is his alter ego. Both his critically acclaimed debut Suzi Ecto and the recent Arpo make it clear that he is about meticulous almost scientific electronic music, in which the small details are what matters and in which feelings are transmitted through binary textures. He has even been called a techno impressionist; 21st century IDM. What is clear is that if he was chosen to inaugurate Houndstooth, the record label of the legendary London club Fabric it is because Call Super is writing his own, unique and irreplaceable code.
