Kali Malone – Velocity of Sleep
- ambient / drone
Velocity of Sleep is Kali Malone’s first full length record featuring a compilation of her compositions for baroque string instruments, gongs and electronics. Slowly unfolding in minimalist form, the record grows as an additive pattern from a single note to a thicket of septimal melodies played on the lute and expanded into canon via tape delays. On the B side, gongs are struck lullingly, amounting to shrieks as they’re stroked upon a throbbing foundation of sine waves. The end of the record lands in a spectral monolith of bowed gamba, double bass and viola.
