"Prospect Of The Deep Volume One", is the long awaited 3rd release from Azonic, the pioneering guitar feedback/done ambient project begun by BIG guitarist Andy Hawkins, with ambient mix translations by Bill Laswell."Prospect Of The Deep" is a natural progression for Azonic, adding BIG/Khanate drummer Tim Wyskida on orchestral percussion, extending the depth and time scale of Azonic's wide angle sonic signature. The result is oceanic, a relentless power, changing the boundaries between states of matter and the musical landscape itself. A long time coming, but the wave has broken.
Prospect Of The Deep Volume One includes two side-length pieces, "Oblivion Of The Deep" and "The Argonaut's Reckoning" on the vinyl LP, and a third bonus piece, "Voices Of The Drowned" on the CD. ""Prospect Of The Deep" is a natural progression for Azonic," guitarist Andy Hawkins explains. "Adding orchestral percussion to the wide angle sonic signature extends depth and the time scale. The result is oceanic in proportion, a relentless power changing the boundaries between states of matter, and the musical landscape itself. It was a long time coming, but the wave has broken." Tim Wyskida adds “Getting away from a drum kit and behind an old, gargantuan concert bass drum, timpani and gong opened up a wide range of possibilities: longer sustains, lower tones, pitch bending -- and they can better withstand a heartless assault.“
