… yet if I suppressed what will seem extravagant and incredible there would be nothing left. The hitherto withheld field recordings will count in my favour; for they are damnably vivid and graphic; notwithstanding a strangeness of technique which art experts ought to remark and puzzle over. It is an unfortunate fact that relatively obscure men like myself and my associates have little chance of making an impression where matters of a wildly bizarre or highly controversial nature are concerned.

    1. Title: Melt – 21:00
      Artist: Wil Bolton
      Release: Melt
      Label: Rural Colours
      About: “‘Melt’ is a single long-form track of warm, overlapping tones created with a toy keyboard, a synthesizer, analogue delay and looper pedals, and some minimal laptop processing. Glitches and signal problems were welcomed into the process, shrouding the fragmented yet lyrical keyboard melodies in a gentle mist of fuzz, clicks and hiss.”

  • Title: Unto the Voice – 11:05
    Artist: Preslav Literary School (Adam Thomas)
    Release: Veer
    Label: Interdisco
    About: “Preslav’s ambient drones are an offer of peace and tranquility. Veer is disarmingly heartfelt and has an emotional intensity which leaves you with goose bumps and a deep feeling of sobriety. We’re not talking about waves breaking on the shore, whales mating in the deep ocean, or the like. – No, droning out of Preslav’s tape archive are lost & found violins, ghostly voices, stretched out guitar riffs and industrial soundscapes.”

  • Title: Waif – 11:00
    Artist: Mutate (Ade Bordicott)
    Label: Electronic Musik
    Release: Fifth Compilation
    About: “‘MUTATE is improvised, experimental soundscapes, dark ambient, intense in nature, mixing live drones with off-kilter beats, shortwave radio & random foundsounds. Other times, MUTATE is completely something else.”

  • Death in Strip Mall – 4:11
    Artist: Seht (Stephen Clover)
    Label: Webbed Hand
    Release: Far Afield
    About: “A famous insomniacs grand fantasy of sleep. Setting sail with the gentle sound of submerged bells one sinks deeper as lush rich tones gradually merge into a swell of dreamscape waves” (Pseudoarcana Records)
