about

Hypnotic, minimal and trance-inducing drones intended for deep listening and meditation, relaxation or just background ambience. Complex, long-form synthesizer textures created as part of the composer's own trancework practice.

While composing pieces for my Ethernet project, which are typically made up of many layered drones to create a constantly-shifting whole, occasionally an individual synthesizer patch would capture my attention and demand independent exploration. Often I would end up sitting with a drone for long periods of time, an hour or more, letting it evolve and run its own unexpected paths due to complex modulation, extremely long envelopes, random LFOs, and real-time manipulation. Finally I would distill the drone down to a 10-20 minute recorded piece. "Polyhedrons" collects four such pieces produced through this process.

"Polyhedrons" is the first in a planned series of small-edition drone cassettes, and the inaugural release of the Kenoma Tapes imprint.
