Respected droney character Fabio Orsi has a new limited CD this week, with more than 40 minutes of his sleepy blurred guitar drones stretched over two slow-drifting tracks, cleverly named ‘Glowing Echoes Part 1’ and ‘Glowing Echoes Part 2’. The press release tells me that these are guitar drones but it’s not something I’d necessarily have guessed just from listening to the CD, since the instrument’s natural tone is smudged into an ethereal pillow of sound, alternating between two chords in a patient, glacial haze. The more intently you listen, the more layers of tiny detail you uncover. It’s got layers, like big drone onion; a dronion, if you will...
Part 2 similarly has shimmering drones which you can’t really tell came from a guitar, which slowly and imperceptibly build in intensity in a slightly more cosmic style than the first, to my ears at least. This will appeal to fans of the drifty melodic ambience of people like Hakobune, it’s unimposing and has a strangely cleansing quality to it. This is beautiful, peaceful stuff. Far too beautiful and peaceful to try to review in a noisy, busy office like ours.
