descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Brownarium is the drone, noise and free-jazz music recorded in 2018 as a studio improvisation. The idea was to make a eurorack-sax-viola trio sound like a small harsh orchestra without falling into a wall-of-sound paradigm.

Rooted in free music practices and heavily influenced by sound of early electronic composers, it's all not exclusively about playing with massive sound clouds or sonic spectrum explorations. Brownarium is highly dramatic and expressive music which is rather intuitive than logical.

The album art is a pun intended with reference to the 'brown note' as a metaphor of drone: the cover picture is a chocolate brownie handcrafted and photographed by designer Lena Vnetlena, and tracks are named after the Scottish brownies."-Brownarium
