Posted May 16, 2017, 1:58 a.m.

Justin Walter recently released his new album, the fantastic Unseen Forces, masterfully conducting a sonic journey through the abstract realms of experimentalism. To further understand the artist's process we had a discussion with Justin about his new record, how his sound has evolved through the years, the process of collaboration, differences between improvisation and structured songwriting, among more.
