Replica is an electronic song cycle based around audio procured from TV ad compilations. These sample-based meditations
are as lyrical as they are ecological, featuring re-purposed "ghost vocals" which serve as narration for Lopatin's
signature amorphous, ambient passages. Lopatin's Juno-60 is still prominent, but Returnal's placid, synthetic
surroundings are accelerated through darker, more unpredictable terrains via Lopatin's use of samplers, analog
filtering, tape-op, piano, plate reverb and sub-bass. The result is a heightened sense of music as part and parcel of an
overall sonic terrain.
