Time is Dust is a portrait of John Oliver’s immersive music from 2002 – 2010, a bath of continuous acousmatica with origins in musique concrete & granular synthesis; a trance-trip that shares with ancient music a grounding in a single tonal centre or constant sound. The often very busy surface – some might say a storm – transforms at a paradoxically calm pace, like melting glaciers: a « glacial pace » on the outside, driven by molecular fire inside.
