AboutListening Center is the alias of drummer and electronic musician, David Mason. 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.
Thanks if you happened to tune in to the Freak Zone on BBC6 last week. Now Mark Hjorthoy will be featuring three Listening Center tracks on his excellent “Trapped In Motion” show on the Vancouver electronic music station, DE Radio, this Sunday at 3pm EST (12m PST, 8pm GMT).
Stuart Maconie will be playing Study Series 09 “Projections”, on the BBC6 Freak Zone show on Sunday July 7th. It airs at 8pm GMT (3pm EST). There’ll also be a peek at The Melvins, Social Studies, You, and Elephant Shampoo….
The new Ghost Box Study Series single featuring Listening Center and Pye Corner Audio will be available June 28th on 7″ vinyl and download. More information here. Here are some clips from the release:
Had a nice chat here with Sabrina Tamar at The Vanguardist Archivist, a great blog on things metaphysical, musical, past and future.
