In July 28, 2008 John Keston started a project at Audio Cookbook called One Sound Every Day. His aim was to create and post one different sound every day, up to 365. The day has come, and John submitted yesterday his 365th sound and realease his album Precambrian Resonance.
About the sound:
“For my 365th sound I am presenting Fire Diamond. It is track number thirteen on the album. Whereas most of this release is a departure from my usual approach, in my opinion, this track is the most similar to my previous work out of any others within this collection. I hope you enjoy it and the rest of the album. Thanks to everyone who helped me complete this work, especially Nils Westdal, who proved to me that introspective music can be beautiful through his albums, Flavor Country, and Transdimensional Bypass.”
Listen to Fire Diamond.
About the album:
Precambrian Resonance, the debut release of John Keston’s solo work, Ostraka, emerged after eleven months of capturing random recordings and sound design experiments exhibited on audiocoobook.org. These so called, “recipes for sound design,” led Keston in a new musical direction that harnessed seemingly chaotic behaviors of natural sound recordings and digital processing into musical forms. On July 28, 2009, after posting 365 audio experiments in one year, his collection of openly experimental pieces will be released. Until then pre-release orders are available. Pre-release download links will be emailed no later than one week before the official release date.
