New project from members of Niagara Falls, Norman Fetter (ex-Golden Ball), Sam Cusumano, and Erich Breimhurst. Dreamy and evocative, theses slowly evolving soundscapes were spontaneously crafted with analog synths, hand- percussion, and circuit-bend electronics, as well as live sampling and looping. These pieces are both gut-wrenchingly crushing, and softly meditative, and focus on the search for sound as much as the sound itself.
Like a new hybrid of ambient and noise, nestled somewhere between Oval and early Tangerine Dream, DNA/RNA is perfect for meditation, baby making, and/or yoga.
For Tathagatta, Sam Cusumano moves out of his roles of recording engineer and mixer, and adds tones from hand-made, circuit bent children’s toys and thrift store keyboards, as well as vintage analog synths. Norman Fetter steps away from the drum kit in Niagara Falls, and the bass in Golden Ball in order to experiment with synthesizers and various hand percussion. Erich Breimhurst completes the triangle with additional synth work as well as bamboo flute.
Each disc contains one long format piece approximately one hour in length. Both discs were mixed from recordings of the 10 hour performance that the band gave on December 15-16, 2007 as part of the Sweet 69 Music Marathon held at Chronic Town in State College, PA. Tathagatta played throughout the evening as the audience slipped into sleep, and continued through to the next morning as they were waking to the new day.
