through Rarefied Air:- debut release 2007



In 1961, the Drake Equation was formulated as a means of predicting if other intelligent civilisations may exist in our galaxy. "The real value of the Drake Equation is not in the answer itself, but the questions that are prompted when attempting to come up with an answer." SETI website

Nearly 50 years later, Brisbane based electronica artist the Drake Equation is proud to announce completion of the debut CD entitled: through rarefied air. The music delivers ambient, downtempo electronica that draws upon a wide range of influences. Combining natural and synthesised sound sources, with classical and modern composition elements, this is music that looks to the future.

The Drake Equation is the music of Geoff Hill, and features the vocals of Nathan Kneen on tracks 4 & 6. Both have a background in classical music, with Geoff studying classical piano before embracing keyboards with blinking lights. His influences include acts such as Boards of Canada, Royskopp, Brian Eno, and Sigur Ros. Nathan has performed and toured through Germany with the Ten Tenors.

The CD is planned for a limited, independent release mid 2007. Some pre-release demos were sent out late 2006 and received airplay on Triple J's The Sound Lab, and EvolveR was included in the web based Idyllic Music Podcast looking at States of Solitude.

Please listen and enjoy,
Geoff Hill
