Diaspora – Ohmwrld LP
Polished dark ambient soundscapes from Brisbane retaining a sense of continuity without inoculating the ensuing chaos. Diaspora draws the listener into the dark spaces where ceremonial pain is but a stepping stone to transcendence. Isolating the ritual in the religious and resituating it within a tabula-rasa, the audience is inspired to touch their own spirit, find their own gods, worship their own life as the holiest of sacraments.
Lloyd Barrett and Joe Musgrove are the primary creative personae behind Diaspora. Both have been heavily involved in all aspects of the BrisbaneExperimental Noise/Sound Art Scene for several years playing together and separately as Brainlego, Biffplex, and Bourbaki.
