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.
"through rarefied air" is the debut CD of the Drake Equation.
"This universe is indeed a vast empty place. Thankfully there are bands like The Drake Equation to fill the void."
