Sleep Research Facility
explores notions of awareness and perception in the sub/unconcious listener.
Focusing primarily on sound bereft of rhythm based energies, SRF(acility)'s
goal is to provide listening environments wherein the music simply adds
texture to the silence. SRF entertains the idea that music can forgoe
notions of compositional architecture, resulting in noise which draws
attention away from itself, leaving room for the listener to focus on
other things (or, focus on nothing at all). SRF puts emphasis on these
aesthetics in the search for a kind of "play me quiet" sound
suitable for listening to actively or passively depending on circumstances,
creating an aural experience which guides the mind through gentle misdirection
rather than forcing its attention, allowing listeners to drift in their
own diversified thoughts.
