Listening Center is the alias of drummer and electronic musician, David Mason. Drawing primarily from influences such as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, lost film/TV soundtracks, and Kosmische Musik, Listening Center presents a patchwork of imagined pasts/futures, in which the listener can make his or her way through an undergrowth of dream-like melodies and electronic sound palettes which have the effect of being now reassuring, now unsettling. Having grown up in Ireland in the 1980s Read more on Last.fm

Pre-release of the third and final cassette of our initial unadorned series: Maybe the Sweet Honey Pours - a psychedelic collaboration with the elusive sound poet Fel Santos, his real world counterpart, Paolo Javier and Listening Center. Link in bio. "Maybe The Sweet Honey Pours is made up of discrete short poems sequenced to resemble parts of a long poem composed during a single train ride from NYC to Toronto one midwinter day. In the work, I set out to explore the relationship between sequentiality and narrativity, and the potential unity this would afford poems otherwise deemed fugitive: works-in-progress, thought experiments, guesswork, shards, remnants." -Paolo Javier "Beginning An Expedition & Timestream are essentially early Listening Center tracks transferred from a wavering four track cassette recorder; From An Unknown Source is just that, it was found on a tape one day - I have no recollection of making it or where it originated." -Listening Center

Aug 29, 2017
Preview of the next A Year In The Country album The Quietened Cosmologists available for pre-order on September 12th and released October 3rd...
"The Quietened Cosmologists is a reflection on space exploration projects that have been abandoned and/or that were never realised, of connected lost or imagined futures and dreams, the intrigue and sometimes melancholia of related derelict sites and technological remnants that lie scattered and forgotten."
