An Italian Drone (MP3)

"Elektra" by Dr. Guilty

Following up on yesterday’s beautiful drone by Darren Harper, here is another that builds a slow and singularly beautiful melodic exploration from what is, for stretches, easily mistakable for pure background tone. It’s “Elektra” by Dr. Guilty, and that so-to-speak mistake is, in fact, a willful intent, as “Elektra” ekes its sonic transitions precisely from, and within, the sort of acoustic ephemera that is so pervasive as to become virtually inaudible. It moves from prayer-bowl ripples to knife-blade glistens to near-choral density, occasionally making steep crescendos both up and down, yet never losing the sense of something hovering slightly above and beyond conscious perception.
