Music: RON – “Of The Happening”

What I love about this piece from local duo RON is how much it moves and flows and evolves over its nearly 19-minute running time. While I’m all for a little stagnation and repetition in music, it’s obvious that Carl Laukkanen and Sam Wenc put a lot of care into making sure this work had some momentum to it, letting it move from a quaintly minimalist guitar/synth beginning into more glitchier territory. And it all wraps up in a triumphant symphony of drones. I feel energized and excited by this brilliant work. Just what I need to help get me through the long stretch before Election Day.
