about

"... Immeasurable is a deeply textured sonic landscape that - much like the aforementioned concepts of peace and positivity - reveals deeper layers each time you revisit the wispy, watery reverberations contained therein."

--Cory Vaillancourt, Erie Reader, June 2014

Immeasurable is the second full-length collaboration from onewayness (Adam Holquist / Erie, PA) and dRachEmUsiK (Charles Shriner / Indianapolis, IN), following 2012’s critically acclaimed The Sound of Thunder, which Star’s End Ambient Radio named as one of their Significant Releases of 2013.
Immeasurable is a long-form piece in four movements, based on the brahmavihāras (the “four immeasurables”), a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them.  Metta – Loving Kindness, the wish that all sentient beings, without any exception, be happy; Karuna – Compassion, the wish for all sentient beings to be free from suffering; Mudita – Empathetic Joy, the attitude of rejoicing in the happiness and virtues of all sentient beings; Upekkha – Equanimity, the attitude of not distinguishing between friend, enemy or stranger, but regarding every sentient being as equal.
The piece combines deep drones and ambience, percussive and dub elements, and analog warmth from acoustic guitars, bowed strings, vintage electric piano, voice, and shruthi box, to build an ambient, pulsing, sparkling and joyful whole.
