Porter Robinson shares video teaser of his and Madeon’s ‘Sea of Voices’ edit
Porter Robinson and Madeon recently announced that their Coachella appearance would be the final stop of their wildly successful Shelter tour. As disappointing as the tour’s ephemerality is to many fans, its conclusion is bittersweet, allowing the two prodigious artists to return to the studio and take some well-deserved time off the road.
Throughout the Shelter tour, Porter Robinson has shared glimpses of their performances, which tease his and Madeon’s live edits of each other’s songs, which build the foundation of the sets themselves. In a Facebook post which laconically states, “the shelter live tour is coming to a close. europe/australia/japan/coachella/end,” Robinson uploaded a video which gives his followers a brief peek of a Shelter performance, set to the correlating live edit of “Sea of Voices.”
Robinson originally released “Sea of Voices” in early 2014 to announce the stylistic departure he would be undertaking with his then-unreleased debut album, Worlds. The Shelter edit of the song retains the somber ethereality of its ancestor, but revitalizes its slow tempo with enlivening drums and blithe auditory gesticulations.
