Volume Flow

Music to imagine vistas, valleys, forests and glaciers to by airy UK duo Pausal, known individually as Alex “Olan Mill” Smalley and Simon Bainton. With a cover painting by Susanne Seinmann, the album comprises extended improvisations edited down into manageable pieces. Beard and morning coffee optional but recommended. Mastered by the dynamics duo of Lawrence English and Porya Hatami.


Pausal, the duo of Alex Smalley (Olan Mill) and Simon Bainton, make thick hazes of rather lovely ambient drones. Avifaunal, which grew out of sessions in a village hall in rural Wales, is an intuitive exploration of textures, with various synths, processes and turntable fragments folded into the mix. CD release on Dronarivm, limited to 200 copies.

Sky Margin

Covering all ranges of frequencies, Pausal’s new album Sky Margin has taken the sky to be the limit. Leaving no room in the margins, the drone is heavy, superb, slow, and beautiful, like a sun rising or you, your eyes closed, and a steady stream of drool dropping from your face as you have lost yourself in the music.
