about

A G E N C I E S
DRONES

I've always been fascinated by the hypnotic quality of repeating, evolving sounds. How drone/noise provokes abandonment by transporting the mind through drifting landscapes.

My first auditory memory is the distant rumble of planes that would appear from nowhere, swell and be gone, blurred in the distance like a ghost. Still now, whenever I hear planes my thoughts slow down and I'm drawn into the sound.

Drone music is submerged music.
Twilight music that speaks to the soul, swirly and breathy.

"The vanishing-point music created by drone is what happens when a fixation on held tones reaches a tipping point. Timbre is reduced to either a single clear instrument or a sine wave, silence disappears completely, and the base-level interaction between small clusters of "pure" tone becomes the music's content. This kind of work takes what typically helps us to distinguish "music" from "sound," discards nearly all of it, and then starts over again from scratch."

This album was made using generative music systems, tape loops and modular synthesizers. Sound sources are recorded/processed with analog/digital systems over the winter and spring of 2017 in Toronto, Canada.

... in the death-cell a single note rings on, and on, and on...
