Zomes is a project by Asa Osborne, guitarist of one of Baltimore’s most legendary punk outfits, Lungfish. While the works of Lungfish provided their own deep spirituality, both Asa and Lungfish’s singer, Daniel Higgs, have taken their ideas of aural mysticism to a whole new realm.
Zomes has provided heavy mediations for turntables, tape decks, and dark rooms alike using repetitive strokes of keys and simple rhythms which emanate in ways that provide its listeners with pure mental isolation. While it’s easy to get lost in, it can create the ideal focal point to help tackle some of life’s more formidable thoughts. Zomes is library music for a cosmic discourse.
Asheville, North Carolina resident Ross Gentry performs and records under the guise of VILLAGES. With dense layers and glacial droning, he creates engaging narrative soundscapes that evoke the shifting fragility of the early ambient movement as well as the elegance of symphonic composition.
