Harm Stamos

By making use of close to 70 instruments and nearly 300 drum beats, Melbourne trio Harm Stamos have created a hypnotic, almost trance-like atmosphere in which one could imagine one is listening to a monophonic organ, played by a solitary musician, gradually fading in and out of view. This is not unlike listening to a distant wind instrument, or perhaps a saw instrument, or even a bird song. It might not be the most upbeat of sounds, but given the use of thumping, chanting drums, I found it all quite soothing.
