Patrick McMinn is a composer and multimedia artist. He makes melancholy drones out of trumpets, synthesizers, homebuilt software, and bits of cultural detritus.
CDT04 Patrick McMinn “There was a time when the world was suffused with light” (Usa, 2018)
“There was a time when the world was suffused with light. Everything was pregnant with meaning, and there was a soft glow behind every shape just out of sight. That which wasn’t known could be known, or discarded without consequence to compress the world to a docile state. There is a sorrow in beginning to understand an objective truth, a shallow eclipsing darkness; dissolution of color onto an infinite plane”
Composed and recorded by Patrick McMinn in Baltimore, MD between October 2015 and December 2017.
Mastered by Jeff Carey.
