avatar for Gulls


Boomarm Nation
Portland, OR

Gulls is the music of Boomarm Nation founder Jesse Munro Johnson.

Exploring the reaches of DUB SPACE, and SCI-FI POLY-RHYTHMICS, Gulls takes cues from world classical / traditional musics, minimalist ethos, dub pioneers, andoversized sound systems. With a harmonic spine and an experimental spirit, every track is built entirely from the ground up. Sampling only himself, cutting up and rearranging myriad textures -- horns, synthesizers, string instruments, etc --

Gulls takes on a version of a version of a version, blowing basic pieces of music into astronomical proportions, into mammoth versions with their own savage lives.

He lives in the Pacific Northwest, in Portland, Oregon.
