    Unfortunately, there isn't much more to know.

    The myspace page is equally sparse.

    No, it's not me.

    I'd just like to know if anyone has ever listened to all of the 386 hour song.
  4.  (7046.8)
    i suspect that not even they have.

    I've been listening to some of this today and quite enjoyed it, so I've bookmarked it. Cheers Nigredo.

    No worries, been doing the same thing all day today.

    And here's me thinking that Acid Mothers Temple jammed for a long time.

    Nigredo, thank you for sending us so much traffic over the past couple of days. You guys are our top referrer for the month, according to our stats page. Warren - FreakAngels is terrific. If you option a screenplay, please consider having us score it. Piano, cello, gunfire, machine noises... anything you say.

    Makes from some pretty good ambient study music. Though, i think after a few days of the 386 hour track i might forget it's on.

    haha, still no info on who they are or where they're from, despite a visit from obviously a band member!

    @oftandiscord

    The mystery deepens. I have relented an put these guys on my bookmarks but a 3 hour song is probably my limit, unless some serious psychedelics are present...
  9.  (7046.16)
    aye, i'll be spreading their name about, regardless of how sillyily long their songs are, the drone aint too bad!
  10.  (7046.17)
    After some quick research:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planes_Mistaken_for_Stars - one half of the project's old band.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clayton_Counts - the other half. I don't know about you, but I find the idea of a Beatles/Beach Boys mash-up absolutely brilliant and I shall be finding that soon.

    I prefer the more pleasant drones on the site, but I'd say these guys would've done an excellent job if they were commissioned to write the Dead Space soundtrack. Some of the drones are pretty frightening.

    @ offtandiscord: Many thanks! Although perhaps it should read, "regardless of how sillily long a few of their pieces are." I wouldn't consider something that lengthy a "song" in the traditional sense, and to be fair the great majority of what we do isn't so daunting.

    @ newspaperdrone: I wouldn't bother, unless you're a masochist. That remix was deservedly met with consternation. Fair warning.

    @ interfector: So how did you manage to pull together a track that long, I'm really interested in the what exactly you did there technically ...

    @ wangerman:

    Each one is mixed down as a single file, and then split up into sections. I learned to exploit the weaknesses (strengths?) of certain audio editors by slowing down the tempo, etc. Little trade secret. It took more than a week of dedicated computer time to process the most recent piece, and after three days I'm only about halfway finished uploading it. The next one will take even longer. If you're interested in making such absurd files, there are far easier and quicker methods, if you don't mind reusing the source material. You can simply copy pieces of audio, rename the pieces accordingly (.001, .002, etc.), and then use a file joiner to stitch the data together. I prefer having some variation, however slight, although I have made a couple this way as proof of concept. Here's a step-by-step on how to make a low bitrate, year-long file. http://claytoncounts.com/blog/archives/99
