Alex makes strange textured loops from everyday detritus. Richard takes them, multiplying them, processing them and adding further tones (including melodeon on "Clatterfilters"). The music ranges from dense polyrhythmic collages to humming electrical noise, to create a surprisingly varied EP taking each artist into new and exciting areas.
Recorded Summer 2012
