That's a strong title, 'Modal Forces / Percussive Forces' but Kirk Degiorgio is definitely a man that can cover both elements when it comes to electronic music.

The former staffer at Reckless Records has decades of being in the know and an abiltiy to get the right sound under many different guises.

On this 16 track release he's typically gone for shorter 'sketches' for the two-sides of this this story with has the added bonus of drummer Chris Whitten (The Beauty Room, The Catch) on drums and Kirk's insistance on using original vintage analog synths.

'Modal Forces' is highlighted by the dancey synth on 'Beersheba' and the jazzy funk of 'Khmunu'.

The library music side of things 'Percussive Forces' is seven tracks of between 1 and 2 minutes long that are dedicated to cities in the US, from 'Cincinnati Sunrise' to 'Baltimore Breakdown'.

What would be really cool is if Kirk did his own remix album of this as longer versions but it's pretty much ready made as it is.
