residual noise drones and convoluted beats from the outskirts of the city

/ beacon

Beacon is an EP that contains two live performances of the evolving piece Beacon. Beacon is a call to immersion. The listener is prompted to sit in the moments of tension created by droning spaces and rhythmic motions, feeling the physical pull of these dichotomies. The viewer is presented with live imagery which illustrates these sonic spaces, reinforcing both the calm and the distress that comes with sensory immersion.
