Liquid Faith This is another personal fav of DE. Around this time period Duff began experimenting with sounds and mixing. This album takes you through a range of different styled dark and moody drones with strange wisp like voices and constantly evolving to a great end. DE is really a highly underrated drone artist. If you love ambient music that ranges from dark industrial to soft moody ambiance that constantly changes. DE is an artist to hear! Great album Duff!

Brian Bourassa Duff Egan - The Harvest, takes you once again on journey of drone. But, much to my surprise, this release incorporates a sensitivity of feeling that makes it stand apart from his previous three releases.

It has a sense of breath in the way the drone gently recedes and then returns. And it's relative calm nature will sooth any remnant of this savage world that remains in you.

Very nicely done.

about

The Harvest is inspired by my oldest dog turning 13 years old this month. He's a RedHeeler mix and had an active and high impact life, his joints are paying for it. He's starting to lose weight and fade into the other side and it's no fun.

It provides a powerful opportunity to reflect on the cycles, patterns, rhythms and temporal uncertainty of life; and the value of shared experience and sustained relationships. There have been times when my responsibility to my dogs was the major grounding factor in my life, on more than a few occasions, and I don't think I'd be here today without them.

The Harvest is a humble attempt to acknowledge the importance of embracing the inevitability and great mystery of existence.

"Meaninglessness inhibits fullness of life and is therefore equivalent to illness. Meaning makes a great many things endurable--perhaps everything.... There is nothing about this World that could not be considered known and human, except for the manner in which it confronts us spontaneously and places obligations upon us. It is not affected by the arbitrary operation of our will. We cannot explain an inspiration. Our chief feeling about it is that it is not the result of our own ratiocinations, but that it came to us from elsewhere."

All recordings for The Harvest were made with the DSI Prophet 12.
