Jason Corder & Opium - thepresentday
Quantity in Basket:
2006. Drones and ethnic elements are interwoven with percussive minimalism to create a flowing long-form work of seven fascinating movements.
Jason Corder. The moniker "Off the Sky" was originally birthed as a simple misinterpretation of an obscure line from that famous film Trainspotting. Random as its conception was, Off the Sky is an all too apropos title summating the dub-atmospheric and acoustic solo projects emanating from Jason Corder's studio in Kentucky, USA. It is a humble hand that reflects both his mild mannered nature and his usual "in-the-clouds" mind-set. Jason's musical style is loosely inspired by the likes of Monolake, Gas, and Christian Fennesz
