Massdirge is dense, black, dimensional sound born of universal energy with meditative applications. Try "Black New Age" if you're into the whole brevity thing. Blackness and potentially grim aesthetics should not be presumed as superficially negative or depressive. On the contrary, this is a positive synthesis, reconnecting to the great benevolent void, the unseen. Connect to your opaque recesses. Harness their energies for strength. Listening to the material with full attention via sound equipment capable of reproducing the essential low frequencies will enable a fuller experience. I would strongly suggest a dim environment devoid of light as well. From two thousand sixteen onward, compositions on each album appear in the order of their conception. Negative space is not only intentional but paramount. In the beginning, there was only silence. Embrace the still.
Massdirge performances are solo spontaneous improvisation with only a basic preparation of some percussive snippets to trigger manually in tandem with performing other live instrumentation. Therefore, performances can vary significantly in their content and presentation. No computers or static backing are ever used. That would be counter-intuitive in every sense of the phrase to the mission of intuitive channeling within each moment.
