As CMD, Corina MacDonald explores the deeper reaches of techno, her music building into an atmospheric reverie set in dub. Through a consistently evolving system of software paired with synths, samplers and oscillators, she crafts live shows and DJ sets that merge experimental ideas and field recordings with an enviable sample collection and battering beats—where shimmering synth tones meet industrial grind and steady machine rhythms.
