Although my sound is often very "ambient" in nature, I don't wish to limit myself only to ambient music. My music transcends a simple genre category.
Rather than just stay within a genre, I prefer to work within specific ideas. As such, Pandable music usually draws from a combination of organic sounds and synthetic sounds, and recompiles the two into a synthesis of the natural and unnatural.
Pandable music always has a concept to it; an element of ritual or of transformation.
The Pandable project was born in 2001 when a then 14-year-old Jason Crowe began exploring sound synthesis through soft synths and his first synthesizer, a Juno 106. Since then, Pandable's sonic repetoire has expanded to cover a variety of electronic elements and acoustic instruments.
As of late, Jason has been working on his newly-founded CD-R label, Hidden Stream, and working on putting the finishing touches on his 2007 release, the ambient 'In the Shadow of Summers Now Past.' On the side, Jason spins as a goa and psytrance DJ, and runs a midwest area psychedelic trance production crew, Psycycle Productions.
