Raglani

St. Louis digital designer Joseph Raglani tests with meditative drones and static washes to generate ambient landscapes created from audio waves. Citing filmmakers Werner Herzog and Jean-Luc Godard as main influences, and a variety of experimental minimalists, space rock and roll pioneers, and sound performers (Nurse with Wound, Cluster, and Merzbow, to mention several), his music also borrows through the shoegazer songbooks to generate layer upon coating of white sound. Instead of using acoustic guitar distortion like a backbone for his tracks, though, he depends almost specifically on twiddling knobs and using different filters to make a mushy sonic impact, even more sleepy than unpleasant. Previously using Ghost Snow like a moniker for an abrasive sound project, he steadily developed a pastime in painting dreamy textures using analog synthesizers and began using his surname. After loosely doing your research a limited-edition CD-R, Raglani discovered an ideal match with Kranky, and in 2008, Of Sirens Created was released.
