‘Barely Register’ is a dark and murky exploration of texture and percussion, with distant instrumentation vying for attention in a crowded landscape.


Qepe is the recording name of Jan Hendrich, a member of the Bay Area dark-ambient group Ionophore.


Qepe explores various found sounds and generated melodies, stitched together in unconventional compositions. By applying narrative hints to a constantly evolving range of base audio elements, the music takes on a ghostly quality of imagined stories and forgotten tales.
