This self released CDR was released by Pulse Emiitter (aka Daryl Groetsch) inn 2007 for the purposes of meditation. I don’t know much about Pulse Emitter (this is the first release of his I’ve listened to) so I’ll just post the reasons he gave for making the cd in the first place.
while helping my girlfriend select ambient music to use while giving massages, i became interested in all the factors that ruled out certain releases. too ominous, too rhythmic, too schmaltzy… so i decided to record one myself. it’s one track, 60 minutes long. two oscillators on the analog modular tuned in fifths, slowly sweeping back and forth with the filter and across the stereo field in a repetitive yet unpredictable way, continuous warm shifting drone. then a slow four note motive is played in four permutations on a custom patched yamaha TX81Z FM synth, crystal pools of sound. yeah, it’s peaceful ambient music but it’s not overly positive or negative, very balanced in emotion and structure. good for sleeping, thinking, bathing, whatever. it’s not noise music but i’m posting it here anyway… it would probably be good to listen to after a noise show actually.
It’s a pretty great album and is pretty much the definition of drone music. Get it, get to bed and zone out.
