Discography

Dark Audio Project

1999 Negative Space Productions

The Dark Audio Project CD is the 1st official release from the live band Dark Audio Ensemble. The music is modern instrumental that crosses boundaries of jazz, industrial, tribal, chant, & electronic styles. The soundscapes range from soothing to harsh, & often fluctuate between the two extremes within short periods of time. This is experimental abstract music from musicians with diverse backgrounds that blend together to create something unique & spontaneous. Approximately 70 minutes in length. Published in 1999 by Negative Space Productions.
