EYES IN ORBITS
Eyes in Orbits is a 49 minute drone piece by Julius Gabriel. Inspired by La Monte Young´s 1960 #7, Eyes in Orbits is built out of two continuously held notes. Both notes originate from saxophones and are persistently manipulated with octave effects, oscillators, distortions and delays. The saxophones are amplified at high volume through a wall of guitar amps creating an immersive sound. The performance is based on the extensive use of circular breathing leading into a biofeedback loop that welcomes cosmic moments and psychedelic visions.
