Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Withering Zithering is the abstract and largely improvised side project of Ed Devane. Music made for low light conditions, contemplation, and induced visual stimulus: Withering Zithering is an experiment in restraint, live performance, the use of home made instruments and non-standard playing techniques.
Withering Zithering has only recently moved from the confines of my bedroom and personal listening to public performances. My aim with this project is to slowly hypnotise people rather than to bludgen; to mix a degree of musicality with liberal splashes of noise and abstract sound, to challenge and reward the listener. Mostly this music is the result of experimentation and lots of improvisation, sitting on comfortable chairs, with slippers, green tea and a full range monitoring system...and lots of homemade zithers!
An album is currently in pre-production and will be released on Forewind Records in the coming time units of your choice.
