Comment: Akashic Crow`s Nest is one of the aliases by Chris P. McDill also known as Drone Wallah, Rolling Calf Sinfonette, Rowboat Magicians, Saluki Regicide, and Tree Helicopter. He is obviously one of the most prolific solo artists being around today. Most albums have been released under the likes of Webbed Hand Records, and Treetrunk Records. The composition consists of three compositions of a total time of 67 minutes. Two of them are very extended compositions though the nature of these tracks is quite minimal. More profoundly, it used to wobble in a restrained mode conveying feeble changes in structure and pace. At times it seems like the artist is searching for the resonance with the listener`s perception because it might be you are perceiving some sounds which might not exist at all. It is a sort of psychoacoustic phenomenon being deliberately created. Stylistically it could be considered an example of minimal music in general though it provides branches into electronic, ambient, drone and even post-rock music indirectly.
