Mahatma Dalí, originally a composer of vanishing-point music, strives to provide the masses with a unique listening experience. Hailing from Las Vegas, he currently resides on the outskirts of Washington, DC. As of late Mahatma Dalí has begun to dabble in a small array of genres, though he is most notably known for sonically illustrating dark ambience through droning compositions.
While the sustained-tone branch of minimalist music is about as far away from music as it can get before it ceases to be musical, there is something undeniably rhythmic and hypnotic about it — the very things M. Dalí accentuates on. The harmonic (and quasi-harmonic) tone-clusters that culminate M. Dalí’s brand of dronology are riveting in a way that becomes increasingly difficult to describe as it plays out. When you couple this with the conceptual soundscapes that they articulate within, you’ll find what the ear would otherwise dismiss as tumultuous becomes a sonic scenery wherein which your imagination is the only limiting factor in this auditory experience.
