Japan-based KK NULL and Swiss guitarist Joel Gilardini team up to present the the third installment of their Psychic Drones series. Gilardini, a sound researcher and experimentalist and noise devotee KK NULL (the mastermind behind ZENI GEVA including work with the late Steve Albini, John Zorn, Sonic Youth, Merzbow, and countless others) have been collaborating on their expansive and evocative series since 2020.Clocking in at over an hour in length, for all of it's foggy din, Psychic Drones 3 is exceptionally varied in tone. Noise, dark ambient, and drone are well-represented, yet as a whole, the piece is a fantastic emotional voyage in both synthetic and organic sound design, making incredible use of spatial mixing throughout.From Psychic Drones 3's opening of intercepted menacing sub-bass transmissions to it's final noise oscillation as the faint rhythm of heartbeats and EKG equipment fade out, the album is a prime example of audio as paint on canvas. Soothing arpeggios fade into screeching noise as surges of overwhelming warmth wash in and out. Amidst all of this chaos, there's a surprising, yet carefully curated mix of clarity and calm.Born out of the admiration for each other's works, during the spring of 2020 we decided to join forces and started working on the project. Psychic Drones can be introverted and reflective, or a full-blast explosion. It's a full-dimensional sonic journey inside the human psyche and it's deepest shades." -KK NULL
