These pieces produced by Modvs emulate and capture the atmosphere experienced in a forgotten city space. Mayfield Train Station stands in the heart of the city. A piece of Manchester's history that remains inhabited, abandoned and frozen in time. Much of the structure is unsafe, poorly lit and access is nearly impossible. Inside lies vast dark rooms, decaying platforms and crumbling brick walls. Modus takes it upon himself to explore such environments, taking inspiration and enlightenment that he injects into his music. This EP showcases the contrasting feelings one can experience when delving further into the darkness. All this also interpreted by Antonio Vazquez and Korridor PL1 - The first track mirrors the foreboding nature of the dark open space deep inside the structure. Shards of light dulled by dust particles cut through holes in the wall. Droplets of water fall from the towering roofs echoing throughout the open cavern. Noises from outside the station rise and fall creating moments of suspense and fear. The mood enhances as footsteps rattle from room to room giving you a sense of what might have existed in a forgotten time. Delving further into the dark brings only loneliness and isolation. PL2 - The second track leads you across the platform. A place once inhabited by the hustle and bustle of travelers awaiting their connection, now lays decaying and ghostly. If you close your eyes you can sometimes hear the faint sounds of steam and footsteps ascending the platform approach. A hypnotic but driving track that captures the essence of depth in the most captivating environment imaginable. Words can't describe the feeling of standing in a forgotten world surrounded by echoing memories, but music can.
