‘Swarm’ ‘single’ now released
‘Swarm’ was created from multiple evolving layers of e-bow / sustainer guitar drone notes – a swarm of drones.
The notes make up a chordal tonal centre – a low B root * / stacked 5ths chord.
Regarding the notes themselves, I played multiple instances of the same notes with vibrato to create single note ‘ensembles’. I also used notes without vibrato as well, to contrast.
On ‘Swarm’ I was experimenting with the differing position dependent harmonic overtones that you can get from the e-bow (relative to the pickup) and the harmonic mode options on the sustainer guitar.
(* I used a 7 string sustainer guitar and 5 string bass for the Low B)

‘Ocean Sighs’ reviewed by John Shanahan at Hypnagogue
‘Ocean Sighs is a bit of a gamble. First, it’s a deviation from what Igneous Flame listeners might expect. But Pete Kelly’s never been one to sit still.’

‘Ocean Sighs’ Igneous Flame album now released:
‘Ocean Sighs’ is a selection of ‘ambient seascapes’ which incorporate tonal drone textures and harmonic vocalisations, set against a continuous ebb and flow of treated ocean sounds. The two elements were equally considered in the construction of the tracks and are intended to be complimentary.
