A Weak Force That Binds is Blake Marques Carrington's first full-length studio album since 2012, and the first using the moniker Russian Ark Sakura. The album is largely created using custom software synthesis in the Max/MSP/Jitter environment, with Carrington's "CSCAN", "HAE", and "GRAN_EXT" sound engines combining with ambient field recordings. Working with live accompaniment for the first time, drummer Mark Rice (Impossible Shapes, The Coke Dares, Honey Radar) helps bridge the gap between an ambient electronic aesthetic and raw, live rhythm. Also sitting in on one track is trumpeter Paul Giess, improvising on a traditional Catholic hymn.
