Last June while taking part in two shows Weinberger (Austria) did we played ДOМ кafé, Pleven - one of the finest places you can find yourself in. Our friends from Portable Elephant also happened to be there so we might have formed an immense improvised collaboration. The rest I'll leave to the sound, which are is now digitally released by Mahorka.
|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.
