World 03

The year is 2021, and Isaac Vallentin still lives on planet Earth.

To date, he has released three (or four) albums of original songs: Hedera, Amateur (2018 ed., Japanese ed.), and "..." (pron: ellipsis).

These could be described as botanical groove-poem, anti-bildungsroman, and expressionist screenplay, respectively.

He's also released 5 collections of mostly wordless music in the categories of: freestyle distortion, tundra sunshine, high castle rainwater, asiamerican prism, and blindfold jazz.

He shares his writing here.

Otherwise, he makes a living through his visual studio, Huot & Vallentin.

Isaac's videos, concert listings, and other trivia are collected below.
