Yann Novak: Snowfall

Yann Novak: Snowfall

Another long-form drone from the owner of the now re-instated Dragon’s Eye Recordings. A 60-minute drone titled “Snowfall” seems like it would just write itself, but this doesn’t sound like what you’d expect. Rather, it’s closer to a rocketship gliding through space. Not the explosive take-off part, but the smooth ride once it gets into orbit. Really calm and static-filled, but with progression and evolution. Eventually the journey reveals some microtonal elements and hidden melodies, and there’s a much brighter tone in the last 15 minutes, although it spends the last few slowly dimming and fading to stardust.
