Recording: DUST

Artist: DUST

Song: ECSTASIS [an excerpt in two parts]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), November 21, 2014.

DUST - ECSTASIS [excerpt, part 1]

DUST - ECSTASIS [excerpt, part 2]

Under the guidance of the elusive Abraham Dust, the ever-shifting members of "the quietest big band in the known world" continue to invert the standard musical paradigm by generating the least amount of volume possible, leaving in their wake only the bare husks of melodies and residues of rhythm. Drums, cello, synths, violin and saxophone all take on strange qualities when played with the minimum force to register, which multiplies when the quietudes rustle against one another.

[This longer segment has been broken into a couple parts, in case you want to separate Part 1's "deep cut" from Part 2, which'd be known in the biz as "the single". The group is taking a seasonal break, but will return to The Tranzac in February; you can keep up with their whisperings via their facebook page.]
