Have you ever listened to the radio static? Not much there is there? Maybe that’s the point. It’s white noise. It’s free of information. With the endless amounts of information we’re fed these days, perhaps a small dose of radio static is like medicine.
In composing music as Anderhill, one thing I’ve practiced is using audio samples of everyday sounds. Washing machines, the hum of an air conditioner, and radio static have all found their way into the music. I established this practice of weaving white noise into the music by my second Anderhill release, Out of the Radio Static.
White noise and droning sounds have a meditative quality about them. Random bleeps, crackles, and glitches make for slightly quirky music. – dse
