Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dark Star
The Old blood noise Endeavors Dark Star. There’s a gentle hum, a soft light somewhere in the darkness. And it grows.
A little hope that you’re not the only one in a vast universe. Isolated, alone and dying. When there’s truly nothing making noise, what do you hear? Is it nothing? Or is it the softness, the growing of a voice that resides below the normal hum and frequency of the universe.
The voice of the Dark Star and our Dark Star pedal is what we would use to create long reverberated pads. The noises underneath the lead and the mood setter – that’s the Dark Star. The way a song feels – that’s because of the Dark Star.
