Idiotiste Records Geometric, mysterious and hypnotic. The electronic minimalism comprising the bulk of "Probationer" slowly reveals itself to be a real treat for the patient and open-minded - perhaps functioning by some aleatoric or fractal principle, yet always remaining clear and directed. Supported by confident, tribalistic rhythms, it draws you in closer and closer, not a single sound seeming out of place. With few means, "Probationer" invites you to a unique sonic experience. Favorite track: Initiate.

about

The series is about a process. There are 7 layers of meaning to everything. The requirements and boundaries are what made this what it is.

An anonymous individual had this to say.
"I was trippin out listening to it while taking a bath in the dark with two candles behind my shoulders and eucalyptus spearmint bath salts, writing:
Anything that is about anything is about its opposite.
There is a man who wakes inside an egg on tiny purple planet. It's a good thing the shell is cracked because the egg is hard, and the man wonders who cracked it. The interior is dark except when bright white and yellow orbs zoom high above, casting strings of light on the shell walls.
The man finds himself to be naked and he climbs out of the egg, surveying the moon-like landscape. There is a clean, abrasive scent like tea tree oil carried by the wind that follows the direction of the orbs.
The man reaches into the air and grasps and the air compresses in his hand, so he holds and pulls himself up. He reaches higher with one hand and grasps again. In this way he begins to climb toward the orbs, toward outer space.
He tries to nab an orb and it pummels him. Together they fly out of orbit into the depths of space. After some time he realizes he has some control over direction by leaning with all his might.
I wrote myself into a poem. I wrote everything into nothing.
I also meditated and saw an elephant with golden ears.
Cheers"
