Monolithic Undertow: In Search of Sonic Oblivion


Harry Sword's first book, Monolithic Undertow: In Search of Sonic Oblivion is a colossal history of 'the drone' as it manifests itself in music, ritual and the universe. It traces the line from ancient traditions to the modern underground, navigating archaeoacoustics, ringing feedback, chest plate sub-bass, avant-garde eccentricity, sound weaponry and fervent spiritualism.

The book features contributions from,artists such as Alice Coltrane, Surgeon and Regis, Ravi Shankar, Terry Riley, Rhys Chatham and Sarah Davachi. An extract of the book can be found on the social website. You can order the book from a choice of retailers here: https://smarturl.it/MonolithicUndertow
