The Drain as Oscillator

A track from Brighton-based Danjec

The source of the audio is like a drain, watery sounds heard in fits and starts. The drain just happens to be hooked up to a next-gen synthesizer. This is Danjec’s “OBFP,” in which these occasional drips and drops are transformed into myriad backward-masked wisps and deeply echoing sonic objects. That echo defines the space, and Danjec’s sounds revel in the space’s rewarding reverberation. A few times a string can be heard ever so briefly, as if a guitarist has it in mind to join in the percolating rhythm. And then the string is muted, and the drain proceeds with its efforts.
