"Acratic" is the first major musical release by "Miro Leon". The short EP builds on an established practice in the form of musical diary entries, released on SoundCloud with more than 300.000 plays. While in their prior work, the artist focused primarily on beat making, the EP expands this musical language, by including more spherical and ambient sounds.
With the beats stepping back in the musical mix, the heavily reverberated guitars become the main characteristic of the EP's sound. Their quality is rather calming and can roughly be seen in the tradition of beat-making, ambient music, and environmental music.
The title stems from the artist's studies in philosophy and refers to the Aristotelian concept of acrasia. In the reading of Aristotle, acrasia is the act of doing something bad conscious of it being bad. As result of the artist's continuous self-criticism, they deemed the music unworthy of being released on all major streaming platforms. Yet, in the end, their desire for public artistic expression overturned this prior attitude, making the release itself acratic in character.
