Richard Norris has traversed the electronic underground for almost two decades now.
Perennially seeking out new sounds, he's been able to move from way out psychedelic scenes to rather more straight forward club elements.
His ongoing 'Abstractions' series is a platform for his ambient pieces, with the largely instrumental compositions allowing Richard Norris to explore something fresh.
'Abstractions Volume Two' is incoming - pre-order the album HERE - and it's part of his desire to explore 'deep listening', an idea first popularised by Pauline Oliveros.
Uniting drone with sharply melodic elements, the album has a soulful touch, matching glacial tempos against some beautiful analogue moments.
Richard Norris comments...
"I've been listening to ambient music for many years, but over the past few years I’ve been listening to it quite differently, mainly taking on board Pauline Oliveros’ ‘deep listening’ ideas, and also using drone music for meditation, which has had remarkable results. This music has called me at a fundamental level. Great ambient or drone can be utterly transcendent. It’s real electronic soul music."
We're able to share 'Super Wolf Moon' and it's a beautifully simple yet remarkably mysterious piece of music. Tune in now.
Richard Norris will play Nile Rodgers' Meltdown on August 7th, at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London.
