Ameliorator 01:16:47


Ameliorator is the first work issued by Psøma Psi Phi, a boutique imprint specializing in many different shades of beatless sound. Created using a provenance of a single reel-to-reel tape loop, coalescing over an extended runtime via generative software processing. Ameliorator was conceived and built during a time of forced inactivity, while recovering from an intensely painful tendon injury that prevented me from easily standing or walking. It is intended to be both therapeutic sound and an aural representation of the process of healing. My inability to move very easily inspired me to create something very quiet, focused on the present moment, and filling that moment with a calm stillness. In these fashions, Ameliorator is an appropriate beginning to the Psøma Psi Phi ethos, and a proof of concept for things to come.

**Editor's note: This recording is mastered at low volume, and intended for quiet room playback or headphone listening. In a space, the absence of color is just as vital as its presence.
