. SLEEP RESEARCH FACILITY
. Sleep Research Facility explores notions of awareness and perception in the sub/unconcious listener.
Focusing primarily on sound bereft of rhythm based energies, SRF's goal is to provide listening environments wherein the music simply
adds texture to the silence. A kind of “play me quiet” sound suitable for listening to actively or passively depending on circumstances,
creating an aural experience which guides the mind through gentle misdirection rather than forcing its attention, allowing listeners to
drift in their own diversified thoughts.
. Laurier Brown finds the crinkly, skittering nuggets in the white noise. His first Ortiz release The Crinkle and its Faces
was an exploration of glitchy layered noisescapes, almost undetectable beats mingled with hiss and static. Dark dreams
for long winter nights put to tape, digitized, randomized, spliced, split up, spit out. His second release, Salvage, further digs into
the sonic subconscious, carving subterranean passages under ancient roots planted in the psychospiritual mulch. Hooves
draws from the ghosts left behind in the cracking pavement where the groves once grew, remembering great herds, drifting
past gulls flying out to sea.
. The project of Harrison Dahme, dealing with the ambient and atmospheric.http://www.THEAMBiENTPiNG.com
