The mysterious Digital Mass appear in an excellent internet music mix with the theme of aging or abandoned cities. Listen for free at Treetrunk Records: A Prophecy Of Emptiness Mix at Archive.org
The anonymous musical collective Digital Mass cross geographic boundaries to collaborate with MidWestern sonic specialist Andrew Quitter. Expect drone and industrial techno sounds. A must hear!
The anonymous musical collective Digital Mass strike once again, with this eccentric EP of wacky electronica. There is beauty in chaos we believe, and so do the Mass. Wild stuff, but well done, with ambient and classical influences.
We at Eg0cide Productions have no idea where Digital Mass come from, and even less where they are going/taking us with each new recording, but we are always ready to follow them in their sound experiments. For this new album their anonymous members have recorded atmospheric improvisations on acoustic instruments that were later processed and filtered, but not edited. No synthesizer/looping/sampling was used on these 3 tracks just instinctive playing and empirical sound processing. For the best listening experience, we suggest you to lay down in the dark with an empty mind and a calm heart, expect nothing, and get lost in these foggy labyrinths like while contemplating smoke curtains.
The fabulous anonymous collective Digital Mass have co-opted the recent Treetrunk release by Tange, “Constant 26”, and warped and processed the piece into their own style of Constant. Members of the collective refuse to divulge their process(es), but thank Tange for his excellent source material. “Constant” pieces, for those unfamiliar, are musical works based on being as minimal as possible– finding the least possible thing necessary for listening. These pieces tend to be drone in nature. The original Constant appeared on Webbed Hand Records ( http://www.webbedhandrecords.com ), and others have been released at the TZP Drone Company ( http://www.archive.org/details/tzpdc ) and also here at Treetrunk.
The mysterious anonymous musical collective, “Digital Mass”, visit us once again with their mid-form release “Doxology”. This release consists of 2 parts– one much longer, the other quite short. Treetrunk was impressed with the textures and layers in these pieces and hopes Digital Mass will continue to approach them with new material. Genres are ambient, spacemusic and soundscapes.
Digital Mass is back on Eg0cide, with an album that is as foggy and mysterious as the identity of its member(s). “The Murk” is a 51min obscure and abstract drone piece full of subtle & deep resonances.
The anonymous musical collective “Digital Mass” strikes for a second time with this fun, noisy and chaotic netrelease. The Mass took tracks from Mystified’s seminal “Amalgam” release and remixed them using a fractal mixer. Strange progressions were tossed into the generative blender and added together, making for a wild sonic ride. Please note that this release marks Treetrunk’s 100th effort. We at Treetrunk are proud to celebrate this milestone with Digital Mass, and thank all of you out there for listening to all the great music.
“Shatter Fog” is the first official release of Digital Mass, a collaborative ambient/experimental act. Their members want to remain anonymous, the only thing to know about them is that the number of people involved in this project is subject to changes depending on the albums. So let’s focus on their music and enter into their experimental soundscapes, amongst abstract foggy drones, occasional minimal beats, parasited sound transmissions from other planets and/or an antediluvian past…
