Automating – Soundoffsoundoffsound​.​.​. CDR

Self Released

Delivered with a simple paste-on tab in an arigato sleeve is this is a long drone piece from an artist unknown to me. Based on the packaging alone I was expecting something very experimental and angular, but what is presented here is drone through and through.

This one track begins with soaring harmonies which could be culled from any type of source, though I guess it’s a synthesizer. The tones are pretty basic though so it could be anything. Over the course of roughly 45 minutes the tones become dulled into a low windy atmosphere. Which remains for the next half of the disc.

Soundoffsoundoffsound​.​.​. is definitely too minimalist for my tastes. I like the textures but I would have chopped it down to about 6 minutes. Some people are into stretching things out for an extended period of time so they might like this.
