RSD 2016 release. Limited edition of 500. Pomperipossa Records, curated by Anna von Hausswolff, presents the debut album by drøne (Mark van Hoen and Mike Harding). Field recordings, shortwave radio, and modular synth all combine to form an enticing, arresting, moving journey of electrically charged dissonance, drones, and electronic melodies. "A very hot day in the hills above Los Angeles . . . only possible to work in the mornings because of the sweltering afternoon heat, so all a bit frantic, but with a kink in time. There is no wifi-controlled air conditioning; the car is electric-powered and charging up. It has barely rained for months, (if not years) and the hoses are working overtime. Its an analogue session; Mark's modular synth set up is working furiously and overheating. We are pushing sounds through and seeing what works . . . and things gradually take shape. The forms seem to determine themselves; how much control do we have? How much do we want? Some peculiar things start to happen and the haze bends. Some of the sounds seem alive and are quick to reform as we struggle to contain them, like trying to stuff snakes into a bag. The sounds moan and sing, forming their own phonemes. A new language is being born; are we the midwives?" Cover image by Maria von Hausswolff. Cut by Jason at Transition.
