Time Machines

Time Machines is Coil's landmark drone music album, released under the alias Time Machines. It consists of four tracks whichare composed of a single tone, called a drone. Each tone represents a certain hallucinogenic chemical (see track titles). It issimilar to Brian Eno's early ambient albums, except instead of creating an atmosphere of calm, it facilitates time travel,according to band founder John Balance.

In a 1998 interview with The Wire magazine, Balance explains: One of the interesting things with Time Machines is thatthere's a handful of responses which we've had where what happened to the listeners was exactly what we intended tohappen. There would be some kind of temporal disruption caused by just listening to the music, just interacting with themusic. The drugs thing is actually a hook we hung it on - it originally came out of me and Drew talking that some of the typesof music you listen to - sacred musics like Tibetan music or anything with a sacred intent which often is long ceremonial typemusic which could last for a day or three days or something. There are periods of time in that where you will come out oftime. That's the intention of it to go into a trance and achieve an otherness. We thought can we do this sort of electronicpunk-primitive? We did demos with a simple mono synth and we managed it. We sat in the room and listened to it loud and welost track of time - it could be five minutes in or 20 minutes in but you suddenly get this feeling, the hairs on the back of yourneck, and you'd realise that you'd had some sort of temporal slip. We fine-tuned, well, filters and oscillators and stuff, to tryand maximise this effect. It was that we were after with simple tones - somehow you could slip through.
