According to John Vorus, "I see working with sound as mapping vibrations in air. By matching together different vibrational patterns, it is possible to create, in three-dimensional space, the subtlety and atmosphere of a place that is reflected in your consciousness. When I hear a sound I can see its shape, color, texture, and movement in my head. So, for me, sound is a visual art that you see with your mind."

Vorus's weapon of choice is the didgeridoo, that primitive Australian soundmaker the Aborigines carved out of local wood, each one utterly unique in its tonal phrasing, composition, & aural fingerprint. Schooled in the technique of circular breathing, the traditional, most direct connection to the didg's particular sonic codex, Vorus wrings out all manners of tones, both earthly & unearthly, from the magical instrument. The fact that he harnesses the sounds of electronic processes to the didg's mainframe doesn't detract in the slightest; on the contrary, this unholy merger of primitive analog with contemporary digital electronic atmospheres serves to heighten and emphasize the dynamic range of both idioms.

Vorus's debut album, "Transmuting Currents", raises many visual spectres via his particularly colorful and vibrant melding of sounds, allowing the deep sonorities of the didg to seamlessly blend, blur, and whirl within deftly sculpted electronic textures and sharp rhythms. Like Steve Roach's similarly forged techno-tribalisms, Vorus's creations also conjure ancient and contemporary sound mystics, a shamanistic music of great breadth and power.
