(Melon Expander) CD $13.50
Live sampling pioneer Thomas Dimuzio and tape-loop maestro Joseph Hammer (Solid Eye) swallow audiences with dark explorations of sound. They specialize in a symbiotic sound process as they continually loop, reloop, sample and resample within an interactive feedback circuit linking both artists. Nearly every aspect of Dimmer's live performances grace The Shining Path, yet this is not a live document, but rather a pastiche and reworking of everything Dimmer has accomplished in their years of performing as a duo. Recursive circuits meld into rich and seething sonic masses with subtle waves pulsing sound within sound. The Shining Path suspends the listener over dim and dank planes on an aural trip spanning and scanning from a celestial vista.
