"… this is quite a jolting departure from Davis's customary leftfield but rustic fare as exhibited on the likes of Curling Pond Woods.This is what
you might call garden shed musique concrète, homebuilt but highly effective.
The opening track, "Scatter" is tentative, mostly couched in nocturnal silence, with sporadic electricity flashing like badger's eyes caught in the headlights."Gather", however, which takes up side two, is far more eventul, like intense wartime activity viewed throught nightvision goggles, strafing, crackling, piping, flaring up, plunging catastrophically, recrudescing – just the thing to frighten small children and animals."
(the wire 06/2005 / david stubbs)
"this record was created entirely from a casio sk1 drum machine sample.
this sample was then processed in real-time using a custom-built max/msp
sound environment. 'scatter' was created by subtracting (or scattering) these sounds, processing them further and adding silences until i achieved a
desired lesser density. 'gather' was created by adding (or gathering) these
sounds, processing them further and overlaying them until i achieved a
desired greater density. all of these sounds were then carefully arranged
with soundedit16 to create the finished pieces. 'two skylines' was created
by taking the processed source sample and processing it further with
sonicworx powerbundle. then the waveforms of the left and the right
channels were rectified in such a way as to resemble two city skylines.
