Com Truise - Persuasion System (LP)

Ships In 3-4 Business Days

For nearly a decade the story of Com Truise has relied on
science fiction and abstract fact. Seth Haley’s singular style of
melodic beat music subsists as hazy machinist nostalgia, a
mainframe downloaded cosmology. Yet with each release,
alongside sonic refinement, comes an increasingly visible vapor
trail to Haley’s own ontology. His long-awaited 2017 LP Iteration
brought to completion a conceptual space saga while also
reflecting seismic life changes for the producer and designer.
With mini-LP Persuasion System, Haley leaves the past narrative
behind, settling into a new period marked by change — on this
planet, in the present — putting forth his most grounded and
visceral work to date.

The project began as an experiment. Haley switched digital audio
workstations, rebuilt his palette of sounds, and tasked himself
with simply trying it out. The exercise freed him of expectations
and permitted a process that echoed the tones of more
immediate external environments. A gravity had seeped in;
resulting material shifts between bleakness and sublime
suspense, awe at the expanse of existing, in looking back and
letting go. “It’s a sort of sad smile and a wave goodbye but at the
same time hello, a 'welcome to your life’ moment,” Haley says.
Take the storm pattern sequence from “Gaussian” to “Ultrafiche
of You”: a queasy, contemplative vignette rests on a single
soft-synth cloud before the latter’s percussion ripples across the
sky. With trademark stutters and swells, the composition
conjures the sensation of searching in the afterglow. “It’s a love
song, and I don’t write many of those.”

That duality — melancholy + optimism, then + now — permeates
this widescreen collection. “Existence Schematic” takes flight at
night, “looking down at the landscape,” explains Haley, “seeing
the lights in a schematic sort of way, wondering who or what is
looking back up at me wondering the same things I am, the
impact of a single existence, the end, the beginning, where it’s
gone and going.” These are observations from this existential
Persuasion System, and Haley hopes the music yields more, for
others, that listeners may search for their own tension and
