The four pieces that comprise Ascending Planes are open-ended compositions revolving around a contemplation of planes of consciousness that are meant to provide a structure or space for the listener to dwell in, live in, and think in for an ephemeral stretch of time.
Empty Frames is an evocation of rapidly flickering images and light, the constant framing and reframing of perception in our eyes and mind seen in a rapid motion, hallucinatory register of resulting half-images.
Passages is the passing away from one moment in time to another, from one present into another, the successive transitions of the self or other.
Preconceptions of the Conception is a recognition, a fleeting glimpse, the formlessness of thoughts in the pre-dawn haze, the moment before the moment of the impulse of creation occurs.
Ascending Planes is a reflection on the possibility of transcendence from the bodily from the world of forms into an immanence of pure image or planes of consciousness.
These pieces are a coalescing of thoughts from a lifetime of immersion into experimental film and music, minimalism, and drone music and concerns perception, space, durational sound, and the Imaginary.
Among many other nameable and nameless things.
