10/10 andy robinson Customer review, 19th April 2011
Mike Orr is from Bristol and calls himself Spaces Between. He refers to pieces as 'songs', which I always like. His songs are made with guitars and computers, but mainly guitars I should think. The computers are used to provide rhythms rather than a variety of processes, although not in every track. Guitars are layered together, and either play a variety of tunes or more sound-scape like sound matter. Its more pop than experiment I should think. Moody and textured for sure, but also a lot more poppy, mainly due to the average length of the pieces, which is around three to five minutes. His guitar still sounds like a guitar and not like a mighty drone music or the starting point for some computer doodling. At times horrible out of date, as in '1664', but then also as a lovely small technoid android piece in 'Piano Doubt'. Spaces Between bounces all over the place, which is a nice display of what Orr can do with his guitar, but perhaps this variety is a bit in the way of a more coherent album. I guess those are considerations to be made next time. This is a most promising start.
