Drone music doesn’t need to be scary; there’s nothing inherently frightening about elongated tones.  Yet the drone genre does seem predisposed toward darkness.  Just look at the cover art for Black to Comm; or the compositional corpses found in the BABEL hardback

Siavash Amini ~ Foras

Foras, which is “outside” in Latin, continues Siavash Amini’s exploration of consciousness, in which last year’s Tar delved upon the relations between the individual and the collective forms of mind. Foras turns that principle inside-out, focusing on the latent connections
