Alice Sparrow is using a bunch of budget gear to make big, transporting drones. Her “electronic ambient space trance from Tamaki Makaurau” is currently leaning hard in an ambient direction, with her latest self-release fittingly called Meditations (2021).

Earlier releases are still to my ears very ambient, although less on the sustained drone tip. The Sun And Other Stars (2021) includes the wandering synths and room noise of “330 AM”, for example.

There are currently four different releases on the Soft Rock Bandcamp.
