about

RECORDED IN THE LATER HALF OF 2003, THIS COMPOSITION THAT FALLS JUST SHY OF 20 MINUTES IS COMPOSED LARGELY OF FIELD RECORDINGS, THE ONLY PROCESSING BEING VIA EQ AND PITCH SHIFTING. THE WORK IS AN ABSTRACTED IMPRESSIONIST SOUND PORTRAIT, SKETCHING OUT THE ISOLATED SOUNDSCAPES THAT EXIST, FOR THE MOST PART UNHEARD, IN THESE FORGOTTEN REALMS. IT HIGHLIGHTS THE RICH AND AT TIMES UNEXPECTEDLY SYNTHETIC SOUND WORLD EXISTING IN THESE SPACES. CICADAS ARE MATCHED AGAINST 44 GALLON DRUMS POPPING IN THE MONRING SUN AND WIRE FENCES RESONATING TO THE BACKDROP OF SITES SUCH AS THE HAUNTED IMPERIAL HOTEL IN RAVENSWOOD, FAR NORTHERN AUSTRALIA.
