Delve: Friday June 18 2006

First published in Delve Two December 2006.  This is a page from my diary comic. For more information on Delve check out my published comics work.

“After tea I went with RW (Richard Whyte) to see ‘Deep Earplug Music 1’ it was nosy drone accoustic [sic] feedback. The Unknown (Rock)star was up first he was really good ‘Jonny Marks’ was a lot lest interesting”

Another attempt at conveying the experience of the music.

On the several occasions I have seen the Unknown Rockstar I have really enjoyed his gigs.

    This one really gets across the experience of Deep Earplug – it is like the music itself has weight and volume (in the other sense of the word). The sound becomes tactile and fills the room with ‘waves’. Rather than listening to the music, you kind of swim in it.

    I remember seeing Kaiji Haino play years ago and his music was like that – it was a bodily experience as well as an aural one. The whole room was filled up with the physical presence of the music.

    Nice work!!

    Its awesome when the music becomes so physical, you can feel it passing through you.

    Nice response guys. Glad it’s a physical experience. After doing the Deep Earplug series, I came across Phil Niblock, who’s a New York based composer with a concept of music that is a physical experience. He’s well worth checking out.
