Ryan Gregory Tallman – Hēmisphairions
Having realised the results of his inspiration, Ryan Gregory Tallman enthusiastically confessed that Hēmisphairions may be the best thing he has ever recorded. Using heavily processed Tibetan singing bowls as the sound source and SuperCollider for processing yields in warm and fuzzy feedback drones. Two pieces, quite distinct in their concept, attempt to sonically articulate and explicate his most vivid memories of his most heightened meditation experiences. While the first part starts with sparse patches of sound that slowly evolve to floating overtones, the second part continuously builds up to an eery cluster of dissonant and conflicting intervals.
