onewayness is Adam Holquist, an experimental electronic musician from Erie, Pennsylvania. He uses hardware and software synths, spoken word and field recordings, and a variety of acoustic and electric instruments to create atmospheric compositions which draw influence from vintage Berlin-school electronic music, minimalism, post-rock, and contemporary electronic ‘listening music’.
The Indiana Electro-Music Group & the Irving Theater proudly announce the Third Midwest Electro-Music Experience (MEME) Festival being held in Historic Irvington at The Irving Theater August 1-2, 2014. MEME is also supported by Sun King Brewery, World of Vapor Indy and Wyliepalooza Ice Cream Emporium.

MEME 2014 is bringing 38 of some of the world’s finest experimental electronic and electroacoustic musicians to Indianapolis, Indiana. They will be joined by local artists for two days of concerts, workshops, demonstrations and collaborations. Musical styles cover a broad spectrum, guaranteed to be creative and original. Live video art will accompany the concerts, for an immersive multi-media experience. The musicians employ a wide variety of electronic and acoustic instruments, from synthesizers and theremins to found objects and custom controllers. Saturday afternoon features workshops and an open collaboration stage.
Immeasurable is the second full-length collaboration from onewayness (Adam Holquist / Erie, PA) and dRachEmUsiK (Charles Shriner / Indianapolis, IN), following 2012’s critically acclaimed The Sound of Thunder, which Star’s End Ambient Radio named as one of their Significant Releases of 2013.
Immeasurable is a long-form piece in four movements, based on the brahmavihāras (the “four immeasurables”), a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them. Metta – Loving Kindness, the wish that all sentient beings, without any exception, be happy; Karuna – Compassion, the wish for all sentient beings to be free from suffering; Mudita – Empathetic Joy, the attitude of rejoicing in the happiness and virtues of all sentient beings; Upekkha – Equanimity, the attitude of not distinguishing between friend, enemy or stranger, but regarding every sentient being as equal.
The piece combines deep drones and ambience, percussive and dub elements, and analog warmth from acoustic guitars, bowed strings, vintage electric piano, voice, and shruthi box, to build an ambient, pulsing, sparkling and joyful whole.
Adma Holquist (onewayness) and I finished the music for our most recent collaboration, Immeasureable last night.
I’m very happy with the music! Hopefully, I’ll have the final mixes done this week. The music is similar to our first collaboration, The Sound of Thunder in that it incorporates elements of drone and ambient. However Immeasurable is more tonal, percussive and integrates acoustic instruments like guitar and shrudi box with the electronic instruments.
The music is based on the brahmavihāras (the four immeasurables) which are a series of four Buddhist virtues and the meditation practices made to cultivate them. By the time Monday comes around we will have created our new release The Immeasureables made up of four pieces. Loving kindness – metta. Compassion – karuna. Empathetic joy – mudita. Equanimity – upekkha.
