Active dark filaments: Immense streams of plasma suspended above the surface of the sun slowly evolving and undergoing cycles of destruction and rebirth. From Earth, they appear as regions of metamorphosis on the otherwise placid surface of the sun.
The music of Active Dark Filament is in the same spirit, exploring melodies and themes which coalesce gradually and evolve over a bed of electronic rhythms. Drawing on many influences, including the Berlin School of electronic music and jazz, the music is realized using both analogue and digital synthesizers, drum machines, and fretted and fretless electric basses.
Recently played on the X Minus One radio show on Hard Rock Hell Radio: "Departure" - dense synth patterns percolate beneath moody strings and melodies framed by an unusual 11/8 pulse.
