about

Expanding on/subtracting from an approach that previously yielded an eight-hour generative ambient piece (issued under the Milieu moniker - see: milieumusic.bandcamp.com/album/living-in-the-shadow-of-a-recursive-bell-whose-chime-echoed-the-dawn-of-consciousness ), Cursive Bell is a nineteen-volume set of drone reductions and distillations, designed for low-level playback in indoor/outdoor settings. Ideal for a sleep assistant or an unobtrusive tone coloring for creative and work spaces, Cursive Bell originated on analog and digital synthesizers, modular feedback and medical tone generators, before being processed extensively via FFT transforms, low resolution downsampling and copious blending with reverbs and delays. It builds upon my previous ethos in the Workingman's Drone series - minimalist sonic escapism, produced by and for the common (hu)man. Fantasy as utility, work as art, volume as philosophy and time itself as an effects processor.

In keeping with this perspective, Cursive Bell has been designed as a budget release from the ground up. Nineteen printed discs are housed within ink-stamped white paper sleeves, bookended by two pieces of hand-cut basswood bearing ink stamping, held together with two heavy duty rubber bands. 23 hours, 5 minutes and 13 seconds of physical and digital audio.
