Recorded improvisations live to cassette restored here in all of their lo-fi, resonance saturated glory
Two ideas set out the frame of the album: long, shimmering drones that rotate like threaded icicles, and stately melodic pieces almost Baroque in their sensibility. Across 12 tracks, all of them between four-and-a-half and five minutes long, Elliott slides between those two poles almost as though he were moving the crossfader on a mixer. Whether you listen to it actively or simply as background music, the album has a way of messing with your head, full of sounds you can't decipher and structured in a way that seems to fold back upon itself. As it proceeds, it snakes its way through a succession of spaces that become increasingly difficult to tell apart- until a new track comes on and you're thrown into an unfamiliar room once again, with dimensions you can't quite make out, but furnished with objects familiar from previous chambers.
