nadir & ZENIT inhabit two different realms of temporality. ZENIT sculpts time with textures hurtling your consciousness through the cosmos faster than the speed of light. nadir invokes stillness seeping you in layers of cosmic dust; suspending time. The experience can be furthered by playing both tracks simultaneously; creating a supernova of sound that swirls and bellows around you. Both pieces were realized using only vintage analog synthesizers recorded to analog tape with many layers of multi-tracking. nadir was created on an ARP Axxe, and ZENIT was made with a Sequential Circuits Pro One.
The album download includes such wonderful goodies as the locked groove sound files for each side of the record as well as a combination of the two pieces for easy combined listening!
