When Dario Garcia started to design his own sounds, his rst obsession was to being able to use frequencies to induce altered states of consciousness to those who listen. Psychoacoustics, low and high frequencies, weird equalizations and heavy post- processes are some of the resources he has been always working around in his different projects to cause different somatizations to the listener. Notzing is the project to develop this idea in form of useful tools for the DJ, to being used in long mixes, powerful quadraphonic sound systems and a bunch of listeners. When these conditions are met, the project background makes sense.
The Notzing project compositions usually are monotones complex loops, with a repetitive rhythm oscillating (usually 4/4). This is not a lazy or an easy choice. The purpose is to make easier the trance induction and to give more freedom to the creative process of the DJ (the modern shaman or medium) to overlap layers of sounds, textures and to develop a unique sound. It’s a way to empower the complexity of the rest of the sounds and the space where these are placed in the mix. It’s the DJ task to play with loops and to develop the ritual live for the listeners.
