♫♪  Barn Owl & The Infinite String Ensemble - “Levitation”

“Levitation” is a beautiful slice of drone work from Ellen Fullman, Theresa Wong, The Norman Conquest, and Barn Owl, whose new collaborative album Headlands is out now on Important Records. The collision of electronics and acoustics is particularly exciting here, with the rise and fall of sound allowing overtones to creep in and out of the mix. It’s a very “big” sound. Watch the video below for an explanation of Fullman’s Long Stringed Instrument, which definitely adds to that organic bigness:
