Both warmer and darker than its predecessor, there are no beats or percussion – asymmetric loops of processed found sounds pulse to provide rhythmic shift over a bed of processed field recordings and ‘found sounds’ above which float, half-glimpsed piano melodies and electronic phrases. It is quiet and immersive but rarely still, always shifting to create new landmarks lit by glitch and inharmonic drift.
Tiny details and abstract, organic pin-pricks of sound, emerge and subside in a constant state of flux.
Flux was recorded between summer 2014 and spring this year, at my home in the Cotswolds, England. Much of the work presented here is informed by the soft, blue grey light of these northern latitudes.
I find I am constantly drawn to the delicate, ephemeral and fleeting nature of this light and how it changes our perception of the landscape we live in. It is this marginal quality, this constantly changing sound, texture and light, along with the narrative taken from the process of recording and treating found sounds that I find so inspiring.
Burning Shed says of Flux…
“If you’re one of the legion of fans hankering after the new Budd, Roedelius or Eno, quit waiting and immerse yourself in this.”
