This Sunday (18/01/15) I'll spend spinning my favorite dub ambient / techno tracks for Mellow Sounds radio show.
There's a Facebook event here. We're starting at 15:00 (GMT+2).
|Leaver + Portable Elephant + Weinberger - Raincircle (2015)|
Rainmaking is a weather modification ritual performed to invoke rain. On June 7th 2014 the weather in Pleven, Bulgaria not only self-invoked the rain, but conducted its own ritual as well. A ritual now known as dronemaking, a sound modification act invoking sustained tones, textural build-ups and blurry melodic progressions with voices sinking in, floating or leading the gathering.
And so a rain circle was formed, to transform the water in sound, which was transmitted through five individuals in a collaboration that is highly likely to never be repeated. At least not under those very same night rain drops.
