More Info
"Pyroclasts" is the result of a daily practice which was regularly performed each morning, or evening during the two week "Life Metal" sessions at Electrical Audio during July 2018, when all of the days musical participants would gather and work through a 12 minute improvised modal drone at the start and or end of the day’s work. The piece performed was timed with a stopwatch and tracked to two inch tape, it was an exercise and a chance to dig into a deep opening or closing of the days session in a deep musical way with all of the participants. The players across the four pieces of "Pyroclasts" are Tim Midyett, T.O.S., Hildur Guðnadóttir, and as always Stephen O’Malley & Greg
Anderson.
The music on "Pyroclasts" is inextricably woven to "Life Metal". It exists on the very same tape reels, was explicitly recorded by Steve Albini. It is a sister, or perhaps a shadow album. Or perhaps the now apparent miasma or aether. But it also exists in a form of a pause, a time space which exist in between and around the compositional structures of Sunn O)))’s titanic works.
