Dirty Inputs - Signal Returning

from by Quiet Drones



Dirty Inputs is Aaron Dawson, a musician and VJ based in Toronto, Canada. Dawson was part of the Toronto ambient drone collective Off The International Radar and has shared the stage with the likes of Holy Fuck, A Place To Bury Strangers, Junior Boys, Hauschka, Quintron and Nadja among many others.

“Signal Returning is an experiment with disintegration. It was originally a completely different song, and I was really unhappy with the result. Frustrated, I started to take each of the separate layers and disintegrate them, slowing them down, adding layer upon layer of different reverbs to them. At first it was almost an attempt to destroy them, to punish them. I didn't even listen back to it for a long time after messing with it, I was so annoyed at myself. But then, listening back, I started to realize this was where it should be.” Dirty Inputs’ debut album for paper+sound “The Runcible” was recently released as a limited tape and DL.
