The love and dedication that Anna Jordan places in each project she pursues reflects an artist that thrives on creativity and creation itself, turning thoughts and narratives into a near-palpable reality. As an electronic music producer, visual artist, sound designer or painter, she gathers in herself an ideal skill set that enables her to visualize a sonic reality, translatable into several artforms that comply with her futuristic, forward- thinking vision under her musical alias, The Allegorist.
With Hybrid Dimension I, her second album, released via Los Angeles’ Detroit Underground, Jordan created an extensive audiovisual experience, treading the realms of downtempo electronica, ambient and spatial exploration, having her track and video for ‘Humandroid Lovers’ featured at the Hong Kong Arthouse Film Festival in late 2018.
The Allegorist’s new album, Hybrid Dimensions II, gives continuity to the galactic journey initiated by the protagonist, a girl that overcame her fears to become the Dragon Rider. She now finds herself standing on the boat known as The Viking Thunder, facing a foreign land – the unknown.
Hybrid Dimensions II comprises twelve-tracks of otherworldly soundscapes, electronic textures of grand embodiment, proportion, sounds of lament and dissociation. Hypnotic and fragile on the verge of desolation, Jordan’s ability to occupy the surrounding space with her technical performance is immersive, with it requiring detailed attention to connect the layers of dense, symbiotic melodies.
‘But there is a sort of light, so small that it can only be seen in the deepest darkness. It wasn’t there at the boat or ruins, where everybody was looking for it. It was inside of all of them. ‘
Aiming for solace, Hybrid Dimensions II’s journey conquers higher planes, achieving its goals of unification and closure, soundtracked with great depth, detail and made with an invaluable amount of passion and consistency by The Allegorist. For the protagonist, her story concludes after batting great distances, facing dark encounters, but in the end, she came, conquered and left, whole again.
