GRAZE

A. Coax
B. Thundare
 
Graze is the synthetic porous ultralight material derived from low-mid frequencies, in which the liquid component of the melody has been replaced with curvaceous tones. The result are tracks with extremely low density and high thermal conductivity.
 
“Coax” was produced by extracting the liquid component of an early Toronto rave tape through supercritical drying. This allowed the essence to be slowly extracted without causing the solid matrix in the samples to collapse from tape hiss, as would happen with conventional techniques.

Rolling, inventive rhythms and complex choral arrangements from Toronto’s Maaskant on New Kanada.
 
“The technology of the burning glass has been known since antiquity. Vases filled with water used to start fires were known in the ancient world, and metaphorical significance was drawn  from the fact that the water remained cool even though the light passing through it would set materials on fire.”

A1. Omni (w/ Pitto)
B1. Siren To Siren
B2. Chronos
 
This holographic release was inspired by black hole thermodynamics.
 
In the case of Omni, the insight was that the sound content of all fallen objects might be contained in surface fluctuations of the event horizon.
Siren To Siren is microscopically random, like a hot gas. A known configuration of classic tape sounds has zero entropy: there is nothing random about binary configurations. If one throws a hot gas with entropy into Chronos, the entropy would disappear – producing aggressive bandwidths, and ragga baselines.

Thermo acoustics is the area of sound that seeks to reconcile the laws of sinuous audio strands with the existence of black hole event horizons. Much as the study of the statistical mechanics of body radiation led to the experience of quantum sub dynamics, the effort to understand the statistical mechanics of bass has had a deep impact upon the understanding of holographic principle, leading to the formulation of these tracks.

MWeapon / Scrap

A1. MWeapon
B1. Scrap (Fighting Dub)

MWeapon minerals display luminous bass bands, which appear to move as the specimen is rotated. Such frequencies are composed of parallel fibers, which reflect sound into a direction perpendicular to their orientation, thus forming narrow bands of light. The most famous examples are FM and subtractive, but the effect may also occur in other sound banding – such aquamarine, moonstone and tourmaline.
