Ben Collins (SFCD) - HewaitsforHer (2009)


Hello everybody,

I am here in sunny Los Angeles with my first post since moving out here, which is also the first record I've made since moving out here.

It's a single thirty-nine minute track of processed electric guitar. I would say it is ambient, drone, glacial, and probably good to sleep to. As a note to the listener though: the sound was processed to be heavy on the low frequencies, so if you attempt to listen to it on yr laptop speakers it will seem to be very quiet because laptop speakers can't handle the frequency range that nice speakers, or a car or even headphones can. So for the optimal listening experience I would suggest another form of playback.

It's also worth noting that this is the first record I've made that was in some ways inspired by David Foster Wallace's novel Infinite Jest, which I am reading now and would recommend to any reader who has a mind that needs to be blown.

More to come.

thank you.
