Drifting intro open (2010)

35’45” of tape loops, pink noise and an occasional improvisation. Cut up recordings all-but-destroyed digitally then recorded in glorious 24bit. Worn drones fading in their own reverb. An homage to thirty+ year old VHS tapes. A sonic trip along the roads of the Pacific Northwest. A record that shifts glacially, a grainy collage of slow movements.
