No Man’s Land – ‘Black Hill’ (Be_Hear / Now)
Performing sets with her partner Swiss van Kalken, No Man’s Land’s unique approach to music making through their mix of doom and drone gives an interesting flare to Be_Hear / Now.
The music of No Man’s Land’s is heavily rooted in improvisation. The pair, who both come from rich backgrounds in the music and arts industry, have a great deal of chemistry and are clearly attune to one another, helping them create some memorable live sets on the spot.
Creating music in the doom and drone genre lends itself to slower tempos, meaning connections between musical motifs and chord changes that are put forward by performers come forward with a much stronger emphasis.
