DRONARIVM, DR-15, 2 x 3’CDr + DL, ltd. 75
‘Breathing’ began in Japan with Ryonkt processing his guitar into a long 45 minute drone piece. He later sent the piece to Jason Corder aka Offthesky who then layered textures on top consisting of rice dropped onto a contact mic’d bowl from far above, processed vibraphone, vocals, breath sounds and more. The 45 minute piece was later split into two separate entities: the first part is for inhale, the second one is for exhale.
The collaboration between Ryo Nakata and Jason Corder gave a life to a music of breathing. Sound seems to flow in the air as oxygen does in venous leaf fibers in Peter Nejedly’s artwork.
According to the design concept, enclosed inserts complete a cover as a part of a general image. Original packaging by Dronarivm Art.
Limited edition of 75 handnumbered copies.
Ryo Nakata is an ambient/experimental producer from Sapporo, Japan.
Offthesky is the ever evolving sonic quilt of Denver, Colorado artist Jason Corder. Wielding instruments such as a vibraphone, guitar, piano, and various others accoutrements, mr. Corder makes home-spun and spacious sound-scapes of majestic proportion.
