Listening Center performs Cycles, Examples, and Other Phenomena
Drawing primarily from influences such as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, lost film/tv soundtracks, and kosmische musik, Listening Center presents a patchwork of imagined pasts/futures, in which the listener can make his or her way through an undergrowth of dream-like melodies and electronic sound palettes which have the effect of being now reassuring, now unsettling. Listening Center is the alias of drummer and electronic musician, David Mason.
