Words by Phil:
Experimental music, mostly by my friends, but some by people I've never met. A mix of noise, lofi electronics, repurposed instruments, fictional choirs, and improvisation. It's split into thee vague sections: Core of the Coalman's Serra-inspired harsh noise, Jason Kahn & Tim Olive's DIY electronics, Ted Byrnes & William Hutson's grinding tape/percussion improv, and Okkyung Lee's punk cello improv tumble over haunting trans-continental drone & textural works. The remaining pieces are a blend of introspective field recordings (Embla Quickbeam), revived baroque-era instruments (Alma Laprida), dread-inducing guitar ensemble (Paul McGuire) meditative no-input mixing board (Toshimaru Nakamura), and bewildering drone/choral proclamations (Turf Boon, performed by Jennifer Walshe & Grúpat). Anne La Berge's miniature work 'TOO', rounds off the mix with a rhyming couplet, musing on listening in the modern world.
