Atlantic Rhythms:

"Urner is the moniker of Isaac Pearl, a composer and programmer based in Ridgewood, Queens. Exits, his debut release for Atlantic Rhythms, is the culmination of a year of compositional experimentation, personal growth, and deep introspection. spaces between environmental music, video game soundtracks, and deep listening.

Pearl's approach to composition is highly influenced by his training in computer science as well as a deep appreciation for the world-building of video games. “Musical systems can often feel like worlds of their own,” says Pearl, “balancing the intellectual process of designing systems with the more emotional world of improvisation and melodic/harmonic composition.” Urner's Exits intentionally brings that balance to bear in eight compositions building a world unto its own – a musical system as Pearl sees it. ,” according to Pearl, “and find a lot of creative inspiration from the entire experience of visuals, audio, gameplay, design, etc.”

Starting in April 2020, Pearl started cataloging live improvisations. After nearly a year of documenting, Exits began to take shape through editing and consolidating that bank of archival material. By the summer of 2021, a cohesive piece of work emerged in the form of the eight compositions on Exits. Much of Exits was recorded at Pearl's home studio with mostly digital gear/processes like buffer manipulation and live looping. Video games, an aesthetic influence that looms large in the DNA of Urner, would be on a nearby screen muted while Pearl worked through the composition process to avoid getting caught up in the visuals of the software/hardware used to perform.

Exits, according to Pearl, 'Feels like a checkpoint before I venture outwards into the next phase of my creative practice. It takes ideas that I've been working with for years – both musical and process-oriented – and elevates them to a place where I feel ready to release them.
