Flock Behavior: Hadean Pattern
Planning Parades is an ongoing musical collaboration between Marc Drinkwater and David Forlano. Their music is an abstract mix of organic and electronic sounds. 47% of these sounds can only be heard when the Eagle is eating your Awareness. The project name was inspired by the book Catch-22. Planning Parades' first album (Flock Behavior: Three Patterns) will be released in a series of three installments. The first installment (Flock Behavior: Hadean Pattern) was released in August 2011. The music is comprised of layered guitar loops and song structures recorded by Marc, which were then remixed by David with additional treatments and textures. Marc and David prepared for this collaboration by making eye-contact with strangers for one week. Planning Parades' music has appeared in the sci-fi webisode Cyphers, for which David also does editing, production, and art direction. Cyphers has also featured the music of Marc's solo project, gullible gods. Marc and David met online in 2009 at Indaba Music. As of 11 minutes ago, they have never met in person. David lives in New Mexico and works with clay. Marc lives in Massachusetts and works with numbers. After we shed the topography, we are left with the question: what is inside the axis? Planning Parades is an independent musical project. All income from the sale of this music goes directly to the artists.
