Grey Frequency [dark ambient / soundscape / noise]
« on: March 11, 2012, 06:35:05 AM »
I thought I'd share some recordings I've produced for a new dark ambient project, called Grey Frequency.

I use layers of found sounds and field recordings, which are played on personal cassette players, feeding through a series of FX pedals. These are manually mixed in one take. The end result, I hope, creates a melancholic mood and tone, with an ominous undercurrent.

I've set up a Bandcamp page, where you can download the tracks for free:

There are also a few tracks to preview over on my SoundCloud page:

Finally, there's a Facebook page and YouTube channel:

Any feedback or comments would be welcome.

I'm really enjoying this!

Drone music (if that's what you would call this) has never held my interest before, but I love your tracks- the texture is so complex and the sounds are really organic.

Thanks a lot for the positive comments...

There's been some label interest recently, so expect some new material with a physical release soon.
