“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
(folk, post rock, drone)
Quick pitch: Gillian Stone’s ‘Raven’s Song’ is a sublime “vocally-driven post-rock/ambient/drone folk song. It is a reflection on a time when I existed in a state of limerence, intersecting with the third stage of grief: Bargaining. It is an interplay between fire and water that takes place at night, in darkness, in a forest by the river. It traverses a psyche riddled with obsession – a mind that can’t let go”.

(field recordings, drone)
Quick pitch: According to its creator ‘Live Room (Hafod)’ “centres on the sound of rain on the roof of a wood cabin in the Hafod estate in Wales, UK. I’m fascinated by the dry, crackly timbre and intricate, non-metrical rhythms it creates. This sound is accompanied by ambient acoustic guitars and percussion, providing a textural backdrop for the beautiful sound of nature”.
(drone, noise, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Sound artist and audio engineer from Los Angeles Ryan Connor, or Sublamp if you prefer, recently released ‘Bleach Kids’, the first single of the upcoming record ‘Projector Ghosts’, out 11/11/22 on Simp Records. An impeccable, drone, noise, experimental odyssey!
