From Zane Trow
“Still Life” as an idea of form seems to me to get close to what these collections of sounds are doing. An arrangement of objects, where other objects contrast with them in texture.

Constructed from echoes into sets of further echoed motifs - they start and roll, and then they....start again...

Motifs rub up against each other, seeking a quiet and sometimes mysterious resonance with the environment and the imagination of the listener. As examples of using a particular set of compositional processes, they are all toying a line, thin and delicate, between half heard everyday frequencies and a some buried arcane chansonnier.

They attempt to reach through time…continuing the question of how a fixed past creates an uncertain present … echoes of echoes form the basis of all that might happen …


released April 2, 2021

Made intermittently from 2017 on, then some considered concentration applied from March 2020 and sifted through a sieve in early 2021.
Yamaha DX11, Creamware Pro-12 ASB, Prophet ~ 6, impOSCAR2, Moog Prodigy – everything recorded, treated, processed, Audiomulch/ed and mixed at Studio Vector in Slacks Creek.

I would like to show my respect and acknowledge the Traditional Custodians, Elders past, present and emerging, the Traditional Owners of the lands, winds and waters.

Thanks: Ria Fletcher, for images and her endless encouragement and inspiration. Thanks to Ronan Cooper Trow and Gabriel Trow for the conversations, their ears and their patience. And many thanks to Lawrence English & Room40.
