Ephemera presents olfactory compositions based on musical resonances and reverberations. The nose behind the project is Berlin-based Geza Schoen, known for the groundbreaking Escentric Molecules series as well as various avant-garde/conceptual scents.
In the first phase of the project, three musicians – Ben Frost, Tim Hecker, and Steve Goodman (aka Kode9) – created raw sonic material which Schoen then reinterpreted to create three different scents: Noise, Drone and Bass. These scents and sounds are now used in an installation environment, and also encapsulated as unique perfumes.
The Fragrance: DRONE
Screaming green coming through as echoes, bygone flashes of the future through veils of smoke and streaks of light. Multilayered, anachronistic living at it's most vibrant. Embrace every possible movement and Drone on.
Tim Hecker's notion of Drone does not have any direct personal narrative, drawing instead on his imagining of “a speculative day-glow incense from rituals where long-form sound induces levitation.” For Geza Schoen, that translates into aldehydes and air notes, developing to fir and juniper, with a base of patchouli, ambergris, and vetiver.
A 30ml bottle of Drone EDP is available in a limited edition series with box handmade in Krakow. The box contains a code, to download digital versions of the Bass, Noise and Drone tracks that inspired Geza Schoen’s creations.
