Atmospheric Diver - Live @ High Mayhem Emerging Arts 2008 Part II
Atmospheric Diver is a new media art duo formed by former College of Santa Fe students Jordan Glazer and Spencer Neale. This video is from our performance at the High Mayhem Emerging Arts Festival 2008 in Santa Fe, NM.
"Hypnotic warbling and a spacey twinkle - from harsh grinding electrical buzzing, to haunting ebb and flow drones accompanied by doomy guitar, you may feel yourself adrift in the cosmos. Occasionally, some sampled voices are layered into the songs but they feel more like textures than statements.
At it's best, Atmospheric Diver is reminiscent of the beautiful grandeur found in 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is appropriate considering the band's name evokes the same kind of cosmic exploration. I see an astronaut strapping on his pressure suit, and pushing off into the thickly swirling maelstrom of an uncharted gas giant, boldly going where no one has gone before. These are the transmissions we receive back home."
