Slow Sound

slow_2009

Slow Sound is a mindful approach to improvisation, composition, recording, and listening.

Slow Sound can be contemplative or meditative, but at all times thoughtful.

Slow Sound is a celebration of sound as a manifestation of the present moment.

Slow Sound encompasses quiet music in all its guises: lowercase, slow music, reductionism, new silence, EAI (electroacoustic improvisation), onkyo, ambient noise, field recordings, etc.

If there is a choice, Slow Sound is slow rather than fast. Sparse rather than dense. Thin rather than thick. These are ideals rather than absolutes, and exceptions are welcome.

Slow Sound is not an either/or process. We understand that there are times when it is absolutely necessary to “kick out the jams.” But Slow Sound can be a comforting refuge from the cacophony of fast life and loud noise. Slow Sound is not better or worse than any other musical practice, just different.

Slow Sound is robust, disciplined, and meaningful.

Slow Sound is both foreground and background.

Slow Sound encourages openness and transparency, and discourages careerism, competition and elitism.

Slow Sound is intimate and palpable, rather than commercial and impersonal.
