Currently residing in the The Great Lakes State of Michigan US, minimal experimental artist Jay Bodley has been working as Sun Hammer and A Setting Sun since 2005. With four releases on Moodgadget, one being a collaboration with Ghostly International signing Shigeto, and a presence on both of our SEQUENCE compilations, Jay has evolved his sound through meticulous experimentation and considered artistic intent.

Exploring the convergence of dissonance and consonance via a minimal sonic palette, A Dream In Blood ventures into new territory for the artist. Utilising short sine waves as starting points, Bodley carefully applied homemade Max/MSP patches to effect, modulate and randomise the source material. Each track is grown organically into fully fledged artefacts, so whilst Bodley skilfully tends to the development of the sonics, much occurs out of pure accident and lack of control. Faded remnants of the original tones resurface, creating harmonics between the original and the extracted sounds; a portal to the well of the subconscious. Combining these with sparse field recordings taken in Jefferson National Forest in late Spring 2011, Bodley crafts a captivating piece that manages to transmit emotion, even through these minimal elements.
