Bill Harris - MACRODOSE

"MACRODOSE" marks Bill Harris's third solo record, following "Blinking Glue" (2022) and "ONOMAT" (2021). Harris's unique approach to solo drumming combines acoustic and electronic elements, utilizing feedback and timbral manipulation to create a distinctive auditory experience. Where Blinking Glue was a single-take, live performance which represented a snapshot of his live solo set, MACRODOSE returns to a similar format of ONOMAT, encapsulating shorter sonic spaces in a number of different tracks, and using studio techniques as part of the creative process.
