1/3 Octave Band


A Bill Wood and Jules Desmond ambient/noise/drone duo from Wellington, sometimes with contributions from Ben Spiers. Quite a pleasant listen as far as drone recordings go – their recordings often posses a haunting quality.

String driven shiver floating in a lake of orchestral sheen. Hyper-kinetic drones fashioned from the slow moving gracefulness of supersonic spacejunk. Aimless grandeur.

Label description of ‘The System Likes You And Wants To Be Your Friend’ (Pseudoarcana)

Though very productive from 1999 to 2008, the group have been fairly quiet since with only 2 releases in the last 15 years.
