Minimal Drone GRL "Ancestral Origins" (bc054)



Bricolage is proud to present the debut album from Canadian sound sculptor, Joanne O'Keeffe aka Minimal Drone GRL.


"Ancestral Origins" is an ambient opus that is full to the brim with colourful and alluring melodies, emotive pads, effective rhythms and a vast array of field recordings recorded throughout the UK and Canada. These field recordings and found sounds blend in with the organic atmosphere to create a memorable and captivating journey.

This stunning ninety minute story is soaked in nostalgic tones and plays out like a fairy tale of sorts as Minimal Drone GRL casts her spell and weaves a golden web of immersive surround sound ambience. At once, both mystical and relatable. We'd highly recommend listening to "Ancetsral Origins" in one sitting to truly experience and appreciate the full story.

The theme of the album is rooted deep in the heart of British Columbia as past meets present and both look to the future together....

"The concept or theme for the album is based on what it was like to be brought up by immigrant parents and the challenges and hardships they faced arriving in a foreign country. Each individual track represents exploration, self discovery and learning about my roots/ancestry in Britain and growing up in British Columbia. The 'Spirit of Kolus' track pays homage to the indigenous people/First Nations of Canada and the beauty of their culture and heritage."
