.foundation (pronounced just "foundation") is an ambient, drone, and soundscape project from Jake Carter.

The project has strong roots in drone. Each piece usually begins with a "foundation" and is built up using granular synthesis and resampling techniques. Harmony and melody are woven in organically to bind themes around heavy experimentation and audio-generative approaches. Field-recordings play a strong role and are all hand-collected.

I believe that technology is an extension of nature, and my work is a distillation of the experiences that have founded that idea. In my music are the audio logs, quietly captured and refined - artifacts of return journeys. If the mountains could sing, I imagine it to be with the voices that I give them here.

There would be nothing without you to listen and give the sound life. I truly cannot thank you enough for your support.
