TITLE: Arche (For Gongs)
FORMAT: CD / DL
CATALOGUE NUMBER: trome006
The first in a series of Arche EPs, 30 minute drone studies which focus on single instruments.
Minimal tonal study for tam-tam, field recordings and singing bowls. Deep melancholic bass swells emerge from the white noise of the air, which give way to blackened low-end rumbles, floating midrange drones, and fragile, crystalline singing bowls.
