about

Soundoffsound is a long form composition dealing with microtonality, entropy and data loss. Originally conceived using two reel-to-reel 1/4" tape machines and a cassette machine, the final form has been further treated digitally using both hardware and software.

To ensure best results, please note maximum volume occurs between 3.30 and 3.50 in the piece and adjust playback equipment accordingly.


VITAL WEEKLY REVIEW
From Melbourne, Australia we have Sasha, who works as Automating. Through bandcamp we find one album of thirteen tracks ready for download, but there is also this particular release, which lasts very close to eighty minutes, so way too long to be put on bandcamp, I should think. According to the same bandcamp, Automating uses field recordings, found sound, tape manipulation, noise and effects unites, "currently pursuing live and studio created binaural soundscapes and archaic tape based drones". That is certainly the case on this massive piece of work. Whatever Sasha found along the road or in any sort of state, he takes it down to the computer and expands it into one tonal drift, of very slow moving, shifting sounds. Only in movements of slow minutes you hear something has changed here, but change is inevitably there. Its all quite raw. Maybe the time stretching was done in an analogue manner, whereby a small portion of sound has been slowed down on an ancient reel-to-reel recorder ad infinitum and colored up with a likewise ancient graphic equalizer. That makes this particular alley of drone music a bit more intense and a bit more raw than many of his peers are doing. Quite a heavy rock that rolls down the mountain here. (FdW)
