Mystified is glad to report that the artist M.Nomized has agreed to use some of his acoustic drones to craft his very own deep, expressive dark ambient/drone tracks. Both artists hope you will enjoy and appreciate these excellent works.
A slow-moving, drift-y longform piece made using acoustic drones. Trombone, flute and didgeridoo appear prominently. The track was mastered by Simon Heath, curator of the Cryo Chamber label, and member of Atrium Carceri among other acts.
I have had 2 days of vacation this week, and have been thinking a lot. In spite of what might be seen as a lingeringly successful ambient scene and a general wane in attention, I feel that my musical journey has been successful and fulfilling. There was a vision I had, maybe 10 years ago, of a type of sound I wanted to explore. If I could create long musical phrases that were drone-like and somewhat melodic without being too much so-- if I could create these sounds myself-- it's tough to describe, but listening to my past efforts, I feel that I have indeed achieved my musical vision. I feel proud, even though sales and interest are lower now. Popularity defines a certain type of success, but a person can succeed artistically without being very popular. I am also proud that most of my releases have had an idea behind them-- using sferics, for example, as sound sources, or portraying musically the Arctic tundra. And certainly I have enjoyed (and benefited from) many great collaborative efforts. I hope my fellow artists will persist until their vision is/are fulfilled, regardless of popularity. And even though there is much discussion about how to bring money back into music, maybe that misses some more important points that could be made (or ideas communicated).
