DWS142: Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt – Year of the Horse

Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt employs his signature “accidental guitar” method on another release of haunting, sonically jarring loops. At times cavernous and resonant as a cathedral, his recordings explore the depths of the drone, exploiting glitches and mutating overtones into chorus-like swells, mechanical revolutions and washes of beaded static. These five meditations upon cyclical time and the ubiquity of the elements seek to elevate our natural world to pure and infinite tonality, soaring above us like mass aural hallucinations.
