THE BEACON SOUND CHOIR
Sunday Morning Drones 10" (Gold vinyl. Black screen print in B side)
Infinite Greyscale 09 / GER / 2016
Infinite Greyscale announce a new 10" record by The Beacon Sound Choir, a project instigated by multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick. Recorded at Beacon Sound, a record shop and label in Portland, Oregon, Sunday Morning Drones is a work of improvised vocal drone in two parts. Comprising over 30 singers, Sunday Morning Drones explores the oscillating harmonics of the choir as individual voices coalesce into that of a group. Through an assembly of voices joined in song, the two tracks here resonate with notions of collaboration and community. While of course there is a devotional aspect to the music and its title, it has less to do with the divine and more with a profound and moving group experience.
