'Ganzermix' is the first track I created with this project in mind. I was mainly inspired by Ben Frost's 'Theory of Machines', by his use of noise and soundscapes. But I think from the distorted drone it is a bit obvious that I was listening to a lot of Sunn O))) and Tim Hecker as well. Though my more recent releases have been vastly different, I hope you can appreciate it as a starting point.
'Ganz Drone Ostinato' is a track inspired by modern minimalist artists such as The Necks, it was created out of left over cello ostinato's and a manipulated version of the drone from Ganzermix. Repetition is something I want to explore more with future releases, so I want to put this track out as a 'manifesto' from which I can grow from.
