Elephant Graveyard
(Dalí)

A sonic affair geared towards conceptualizing the hunt of Hyenas (available also on the Digitalisman / Analonginus dual EP). The chosen set of frequencies is meant to lend the shallow impression that this track is disruptive to the thought process. However, as time goes on and the track progresses, it is evident that the choice of high and low-register frequencies balance one another out — creating a seemingly meditative environment through synergistic sound synthesis. To some degree this is can be deemed accurate, although what is really created is a temporarily narrowed cognitive scope - making it difficult to shift focus completely or begin a new train of thought. To further assure the effect, there are occasional shifts in attenuation to draw the ear in further when the track becomes more lengthy, akin to “Steam-Powered Serpent” (from the ‘Analonginus’ side of the dual EP).

Mahatma Dalí, a composer of vanishing-point music, strives to provide the masses with a unique listening experience. While the sustained tone branch of minimalist music is about as far away from music as it can get before it ceases to be musical, there is something undeniably rhythmic and hypnotic about it — the very things M. Dalí accentuates on.

The harmonic (and quasi-harmonic) tone-clusters that culminate M. Dalí’s brand of dronology are riveting in a way that becomes increasingly difficult to describe as it plays out. When you couple this with the conceptual soundscapes that they articulate within, you’ll find what the ear would otherwise dismiss as tumultuous becomes a sonic scenery wherein which your imagination is the only limiting factor in this auditory experience.
