"MUSIC PRODUCT: Sounds for no audience. (Side effects may include wisps, new colors, and unwanted feelings of hope.)" is the third in a series of ongoing meditative explorations from auditory atmospherist Zac Bentz, aka Dirty Knobs. Following on the heels of the much darker "666666SUPERSATAN," the three gentle pieces in this collection are interconnected by the same base tones, with each piece teasing out new layers and interactions while adding their own unique elements.
Since 1993, Zac Bentz has recorded well over a hundred releases under several pseudonyms. One of them, Dirty Knobs, was originally a minimalist glitch project started in 1999. In 2011 it was reborn as an experiment in dark ambient and drone with the eight hour long album Field Recordings from the Edge of Hell, which received praise worldwide. Since then, Dirty Knobs has released dozens of albums spanning all realms of ambient, drone, soundscapes, cinematic soundtracks, and more, often exploring themes of deep time, vast space, hauntology, hermitage, and stillness.
