John Cratchley The music of the spheres...I want quarks and pulsars to sound like this...has Jim O'Rourke tapped into the cosmos? Are these drones and pulses and overtones that steadily accumulate and multiply how the universe sounds if we could remove the vacuum? Perhaps these pieces connect the inner and outer spaces of our existence and the ineffable gulf between them...

Thibaut Devigne Jim O'Rourke is one of the rare musician with whom I have no objectivity at all. This is a work on one sound that evolves and twirls over time to create a sort of noisy ambiant. Listen to it and make your own idea Favorite track: Falling Wall.
