about

The idea for this recording was quite simple – to combine layers of sound obtained from different acoustic instruments (tracks 1 & 3) or field recordings (tracks 2 & 4) for creating aural space which can be perceived at different levels. First, the emotional level of simple background listening (which is becoming more and more common nowadays), which corresponds with idea of Аmbient music in terms of Eric Satie & Brian Eno. Then structural, or "analytic" level, on which our rational mind builds the picture of "what and how", or at least tries to - because it's not always easy with drone music. Third level is "deep listening" (according to Pauline Oliveros ideas) which involves unfocused listening experience, when one allows the sound to be as it is, without building a distance between the it and one's perception.. Reaching this point one may realize that sound contains much more than just sum of used instruments & effects and its impact on perception reminds meditative state - full awareness without involvement to analysis and emotions.

Tracks order and composition on this album are meant to create floating effect between all three levels, underlining that none of them is "true" or "better" - the wholeness of experience can be reached by synthesizing all of these levels and even finding more. Nuances, silent echoes, psycho-acoustic effects, ripple of harmonics, tape hiss and forest hums - all elements here meant to represent bigger picture, serving as hyperlinks to the qualia, subjective experience which we all share at some level but are unable to express verbally without losing the experience itself when going deeper into individual aspect of perception. It exists in a moment, and capturing that moment was the intention of this work.
