Following the releases of the vinyl compilation Spring Break and the maxi 12” compilation Bardo for Pablo, Dark Matter is part 3 in the Pablo’s Eye trilogy of selected works on Stroom.
More than anything, Pablo’s Eye is a temporary atmosphere, like a taste or a dream…
“Then there is the sound of silence. Usually, it would be true to say that there is no such thing as silence; no matter where you are, you will always hear the sound of your heartbeat & the blood rushing through your veins.
I was a sound pioneer. As the alchemist mixed material & chemicals in the hope of creating new substances, so I mixed sounds and silences in the hope of creating new sites for infinite meditation. New forms. Instead of marshalling sounds into an arrangement that required attention, I began to think about the sounds themselves. I began to think of the future.”
