David Burraston returns to Psoma Psi Phi with his eighth release for the label, and sixth bearing the Noyzelab moniker. Wood Cell Meditations is the fifth and final installment of a five-part series that was issued serially between October 2018 and February 2019.
The recordings presented here are, as the title implies, intended to assist in meditation, and operate as minimalistic walls of humming drones, parsed out into pre-determined "dosages", to assist in their usage as a utility. Only have three minutes before you have to go to work? There's a 3-minute Cell Meditation for you here. Need a harmonic backdrop for your yoga session or your power nap? Cell Meditations also come in 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30-minute sections. For those of you seeking a deeper experience, Burraston has also provided 45 and 60-minute versions of these Meditations, perfect for disconnection, introspection and all manner of subconscious stimulation. As is his usual, Burraston's work treats time itself as an elastic band that passes by at a rate of his choosing, and for this we've come to be quite addicted to these recordings, even finding ourselves lost inside a three-minute drone. In this fashion, Noyzelab has essentially created an infinite generative structure, and these segments are in fact windows of varying lengths of time, through which we're able to observe and experience something that is impossibly large and unfathomably deep. Be careful with these Meditations - even the artist himself has issued a text advisory in the notes for these recordings - for they are potent and finely distilled examples of the current the universe itself moves through, from element to element.
NOTE: The digital version of NYZ-VIII contains only the 20-minute Meditation. For the full and unabridged Wood Cell Meditations experience, listeners may purchase the limited edition 3xCD-R set.
