Perfume Description

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 other 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 into three different scents: Noise, Drone and Bass. The project is curated and produced by Malgorzata Plysa and Mat Schulz of Unsound.

Originally conceived as an art installation, the perfumes are now available to wear. It was first launched at Unsound Festival New York in April 2014 at Audio Visual Arts, with Bass, Noise and Drone presented at various times. It then moved to Unsound Krakow in October 2014 at the National Museum of Krakow, and at the end of October 2014, traveled to the Tromsø Center For Contemporary Art in Norway, installed as part of Insomnia Festival.

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. Schoen created the scent using aldehydes and air notes, developing to fir and juniper, with a base of patchouli, ambergris, and vetiver. Tim Hecker stated that it is the smell of music that has somehow gone on too long but no one cares.
