The US multi-disciplinary artist Bryce Hample who performs musically as hedia released the one track plus a live version drone single wearedissolved yesterday.
Atypically of drone the song rather than being linear in structure is a series of, what are as described in the song title, dissolving pulses.
The studio version is of synthesised instrumentation which launches and builds in intensity prior to fading in to a paused silence before emitting once again – minding of a slowed rendition of a cardiac cycle waveform.
Typically of drone the pieces are not brief with the studio version running to a margin under twenty two and a half minutes.
The live version, lasting almost sixteen and three quarters minutes, which is my pick of the release – is played slightly more rapidly with the sharp edges of the bow clearly carving through the speakers adding an intensity which is not present otherwise. The more explicit fading to silence is however not as dramatic, making both (available on bandcamp) well worth investing the time to explore.
