- Breathing by Ryonkt & Offthesky
8/10 Mike Staff review, 13 February 2014
This is a lovely little package on Dronarivm, it's a collaboration between Ryo "Ryonkt" Nakata and Jason "Offthesky" Corder, the former of whom made a 45-minute guitar drone over which the latter poured rice and breathed and played some vibraphone, ultimately creating the piece which flows over the two 3" CDs right here. They come in a lovely foldy paper package with an obi strip and some art cards with close-ups of leaves on them. I think it's leaves, they're so close up it's hard to be sure. I hope they're not eyeballs.
As you've probably gathered, there's not a lot going on here musically, it's definitely on the ambient/drone side of things, but there's still a constant ebb and flow of drone manipulation, rustly rice and subtle room sounds, occasionally disturbed by the plaintive twang of plucked guitar strings. It's an meditative mix of very ethereal, processed sounds and more present, viscerally percussive ones, and a very pleasant listen.
