about

The first in a series of minimal drone studies of acoustic instruments.
This recording features 32" tam-tam, together with field recordings and singing bowls.
No artificial effects have been used.

Deep melancholic bass swells emerge from the white noise of the trees, which give way to blackened low-end rumbles, floating midrange drones, and fragile, crystalline singing bowls.
