After working, performing and touring together for several years, it was inevitable that N, the Dortmund based drone artist known for his unique soundscapes created with just a guitar and two amps, and NINEMILES, the Mülheim an der Ruhr based, electronic focused drone project of one-third of the black drone band [ B O L T ], would come together to create music.
The result are two incredibly diverse and surprising tracks that both have the signature characteristics of N as well as NINEMILES but create a sound together, that will take the listener on an unexpected sonic journey.
The approach to this collaboration is reflected by the song titles respectively:
II has to be seen not as the number but as a symbol. The two artists complement each other by creating and reacting to their sounds in a parallel way. Sometimes pushing each other, sometimes taking a step back to give the other space and sometimes contradicting each other to create the unexpected.
X resembles the cross. The structure of the track is carefully planned, thus maximizing the effect of the crossfade, the technique that connects the two unique parts of the song, making
44.04 is the collaboration between N and Ninemiles.
