Adrien Capozzi As with any genre, there is a glut if middling drone music out there. When you hear the good stuff, you can tell the tracks really mean something to maker, and conversely, inspire ideas and/or emotions in the listener. This is one of those releases.

about

Christopher Flores (real name Christopher Ryan Mackie) is an artist and musician currently residing in Norman OK. He was the founding member of the now defunct post-rock band Sonna.Since that time, he has released several solo ambient records under the name Christopher Flores– most notably a split 12” with Janek Schaefer on Snail Article and a full-length LP on TemporaryResidence LTD called ‘Testing the Blues’.Christopher explores minimalist tonalities and processes mostly produced through themanipulation of the electric guitar. Earlier work saw him heavily processing instruments via the
Max/MSP software, however he has returned to earlier processes of manipulation throughanalog gear. All songs are improvised and recorded with limited overdubs.

On ‘Scapes and Devotions’, the theme of repetition and chanting were used as guides. Though most songs are devoid of obvious repeating notes or chanting, the basic motivation was pulled from these practices. As akin to ritual, my process was routine but also spontaneous, thus allowing feeling and emotion to take over.
