'A potential Space Music classiCathe music had profound emotional,spiritual, even physical effects on me.' Kevin Keller,composer 'A new personal favorite,and possably a space music classic.' Lloyd Barde,Owner,Backroads Music 'Ancient,Timeless music..contains masterworks on 6 and 12 string fretless basses' Bassinside Magazine 'You are on your way towards a musical epiphany.' Max Valentino,solo bass artist 'Mourning Guests Who Never Arrived' is a meditation/exploration of longing, intimacy and the Veils that divide people from each other as well as the emotional and spiritual dimensions of reality. Scott Kungha Drengsen is a fretless bassist and meditation teacher living in Northern California.On this work (his second) he plays 6 and 12 string fretless basses with realtime looping effects to create music that is ambient and textural as well as deeply immediate and personal.Much of the music is unrecognisable as a bass as he enters a realm of pure sound;a melding of contemplation and improvisation aided on two of the tracks by vocalist NOOR.
