about

Drift (Cassauna/Important Records) is a free fall album consisting of three compositions invoking a sense of hovering expansion. Deeply spacious yet tightly compacted sound movements create holding patterns that slowly shift and evolve. Cycles fall in and out of sync while atmospheres envelop time, appearing on the periphery before being subsumed back into space.

The compositions utilize modified alto saxophone with spring reverb attachment, synthesizers, percussion, field recordings and electronic processing. The saxophone is played with an acoustic spring reverberation preparation to produce multiple feedback tones, pitch beating and metallic distortion. Using sampling and pitch shifting techniques, the instrument and its presence of breath act as the glue that binds the pieces.

"It’s clear, as a whole, the album Drift is a unique and spectacular album that doesn’t sit easily or clearly in any one genre. This is hugely active, psychedelic ambience, laced with a weirdly engaging magnetism. It somehow should fragment, but the blurring here just ties everything together like a vast procession of Venn diagrams…it’s a wonderful depiction of cosmic rubble, unseen vistas and events floating beyond this world. Drift is the product of working material in a superbly inventive and creative way. The sedimentation of the process results in surprising but totally spectacular music…" (OBLADADA)
