for every action there is an equal and opposite action

this set employs low tones and high frequencies, steady rhythms and stochastic beats. a pillow of soothing filtered white noise punctuated with brain stimulating sonic accents. intimate tones are juxtaposed with informal sounds and durational themes are met with new synthesis.

throughout it all, tobias weaves a meditative rhythm into the set.
studies of experienced meditators have shown that in their meditative state, they take an average of 6 breaths per minute. This slowed breath has been linked with a host of health benefits and reflects a lowered heart rate and calm serene state of being. with this in mind, tobias employs a rhythm of 6 beats per minute to create an immersive soundscape imitating the meditative breath rate of a practiced meditator.

feel everything, feel nothing, feel something.
see you saturday
