Via Negativa is the first solo album for Utech Records by visual artist and Locrian member, Terence Hannum. Incorporating voice and organ, Hannum creates a world where time slows and sound is reduced to the steady pulse of the universe.

Via Negativa is latin for negative path. It is a means of distillation. A way of describing something by saying what it is not.

You might say that ambient music is the music of subtraction – subtract the melody, subtract the harmony, subtract the rhythm. Subtract the author. Where much of music composition is a process of layered construction, ambient composition is closer to that of distillation – find the essential ingredient that will fundamentally transform a sonic environment and dispense with the rest. Recorded in Hannum’s basement studio with the most basic equipment, Via Negativa is a document of the artist’s own meditative process of subtraction.
