Randall Dunn is a musician, producer, and engineer renowned for his work with Sunn0))), Tim Hecker, Six Organs of Admittance, and many more. Beloved marks his first solo album. Following a turbulent period of change and loss the esteemed producer channeled his energies into a seven song meditation on “anxiety, paranoia, different shades of love, different realizations of mortality, how it can make you feel the stages of your life more deeply.”
With "Beloved", Randall Dunn shifts his knack for emphasizing the human component of music toward mining emotional resonance from the subtle details and textures generated from early digital and analog synthesizers. “I wanted to make something more like prose or a Gerhard Richter painting with sound,” he says of the album. “Being someone that composes with sound, I wanted to find a voice in it that felt personal, that felt human, especially with electronics, something that didn’t feel too mechanical.”
