This is the audio from the YouTube video I released for Drone Day in late May, 2020. It’s the first new recording I’ve made public since 1985’s “Ideal Planes.”
This piece (video and audio) was recorded near Mono Lake in December 2019 and March 2020. The audio is one of the few usable things I developed on the Modal Argon8 synthesizer before sending it back to Sweetwater.
Happy Drone Day.
I think this is one of the first things I recorded. It’s the first track on the 8.81 – 1.83 cassette.
This was done in my bedroom at my parents’ house in Lakewood, CA in 1981. The title is taken from an Oblique Strategies card, as I was fixated on Eno’s “Discreet Music” at the time.
The found recordings were obtained by hanging a mic outside the window.
