audience of one
a powerful 4-part suite which moves from throbbing minimalism to expansive song-craft to ecstatic free-rock.
while previous lps by the sonic explorer (who has worked extensively with sunn0))) & keiji haino) have subtly embellished his signature bass-heavy guitar tones, ‘audience of one’ opens a new chapter. featuring a host of collaborators, the opening ‘salt’ paints a hypnotic, chiming backdrop for paul duncan’s (warm ghost) vocals, & joe talia’s virtuoso drumming is at the core of the epic ‘knots’, in which ambarchi, alongside eyvind kang, weaves a net of frequencies & textures with the organic push & pull of a 70s psych jam & the bass response of doom metal.
