Warm, Coursing Blood

by Ian Nagoski

Feather 12:10
Rain 15:24


originally released on CD on the Colorful Clouds for Acoustics label in 1999. Mastered by Jacques Cohen. Thank you Jason DiEmilio, Joseph Nagoski, Rich Pell, Chris Rice, and Libby Tyndale.

"higher-mind electronics, brutal and unsophisticated on one hand, beautiful and truly elevating on the other. Listening to this is like examining fractal images through a microscope - you'll lose your sense of self."
-Bruce Russell, Corpus Hermeticum catalog

"On this release [Nagoski] develops his own ultra-primitive approach to minimalist composition using a five dollar signal generator and some abandoned electronics. Relationships of time and space are explored at length, where tones merge and disappear without any of the intellectual baggage usually associated with such music."
-David Keenan, The Wire, July 1999

"Nagoski's own work utilizes very primitive equipment, although this is not necessarily a handicap for drone artists, because drones are where you find them and are realized through whatever means are at hand. (I've heard some really nice drones from old refrigerators, for instance.)
Three of the four pieces on the CD are quite effective, filled as they are with rich resonances and the subtle ebb and flow of obscure machinery operating with unknown intent. Unfortunately, the longest track on the program, 'Rain,' is a relentless sonic assault which sounds like a combination of a knife being sharpened on a motorized grindstone and water running steadily in water pipes. It's a very static piece, and the aural equivalent of watching paint dry, although the virtue of drying paint is that it's generally much easier to ignore. Still, three out of four ain't bad." - Bill Tilland, Alternative Press, Oct. 7, 1999. 3 stars out of 5
