Joe+N - can you find your what

Modisti

[ Antony Milton and Joe+N - can you find your what CDR ]

Starting out from what could be described as a 'textural guitar drone scene', this duo explores the possibilities of such a medium using a greater scope in terms of spatialization and procecanssing. The harsh, extended character spreads in sweeping strokes, featuring a greater experimental set of techniques, less based on real time instrumental performance and thus allowing a greater sophistication and variation in sound processing. The second track presents a more experimental approach –featuring a casual, accidental attitude as well as a wide palette of sound sources- to the composition of materials as well as a thoroughly refreshing outlook, allowing space to be defined through the absence of sound rather than by featuring large amounts of materials.

    Neither Painting Nor Sculpture

    (Joe+N - Neither Painting Nor Sculpture) Vast textural surfaces of abstract (sonic) materials unfurl upon large format canvases. Concerned with continuity and dimension, the actual sound sources have a secondary relevance, thus simply featuring a rusty red distorted electric...

    [ John Charlton - Walking the Red Road CDR]Superimposed layers of acoustic guitar reminiscent of those extremely reverberant and static playing styles associated with vast plateaux, progressively lead to complex textures of increasingly processed sound. Departing from the original source...
