"Night Angel Of Dual Infinities" is a durational music for voices, strings, bells, and electro-acoustic drones. It is an homage to ecstatic and trance musics, which are fundamental to most all of Krausbauer & Suzuki's musical concepts and endeavors. Central to the sound are the breaths and cycles of the dual voices and strings against an elemental ground of pulsating polyharmonics, creating what has been described as an “ecstatic free drone music” - pushing momentum outward and towards the horizons.
John Krausbauer is a composer/multi-instrumentalist based in Oakland, CA and co-founder of the Los Angeles publishing label, Besom Presse. A long time purveyor of the ur-drone and trance-psychedelia, his compositional work involves audio transmissions for TOTAL/immersive experience. Transcendence through repetition, duration, alternate tunings, maximum volumes, and stroboscopic lighting. In recent years he has returned to improvisational playing and sought out particular collaborations to further explore his interest in improvisatory music-making.
Kaori Suzuki is a Tokyo-born music maker/composer living in Oakland, CA. Her spiraling sound visions often take form in long durations, using electroacoustic sound technologies, high-register electronics, modified acoustic instruments, and tape. She seeks to create heightened listening states, emphasizing finding ‘music’ within activated space-time.
Both artists compose and perform with the rotating collective Ecstatic Music Band (Fabrica, Beacon Sound) and have performed live in Mexico, Europe, Japan, Canada, and the US. "Night Angel Of Dual Infinities" was performed live at the 2018 Time-Based Art Festival in Portland.
