about

This album was recorded in January 2019. It consists of two long tracks, one live at the Snow Bawl in Rugeley, the other recorded in the studio using the same setup while preparing for it.

It's an all modular affair, Eurorack and Roland 100m modulars supplanted by the digital equivalent in the Nord Modular G2. Even the drum machine is semi-modular.

The invitation to play came at a perfect time as the idea of a modular based setup had been brewing for a while, with the intention of trying to find new and different (and ideally local!) places to perform. As ever the master-plan hasn't entirely followed its expected course. The live recording was flawed, and defeated attempts to repair it. Years passed alternating between considering it worth putting out warts and all and holding back not wanting to compromise on quality. This seemed insurmountable until a lightbulb moment resulted in a fix and here it is, finally.

Musically this is dark, intense, almost industrial at times, concentrating on abstract soundscapes and dense evolving sequences.
