On this LP highbrow droney sound art types Gareth Hardwick and P Jorgensen bat it out with a side apiece of gorgeous driftiness. On Hardwick’s side we’ve got a 19-minute piece entitled ‘Sixteenth February Twenty Twelve’, which has a succession of undulating peace drones on guitar with an almost organ-like feel in places, swelling and drifting in an expert and uplifting way while carving out slow, graceful melodies. It’s really peaceful, calming stuff and while it’s less eventful than Jorgensen’s side it’s probably my favourite of the two and will appeal to fans of the likes of Hakobune or even Stars of the Lid.
On the other side Jorgensen offers ‘Four Pieces For Moreschi’, comprised of four contrasting movements of “processed musical interludes and field recordings”, although they run into one another and I can’t be certain exactly where each one starts. It begins with a glassy industrial hum with what sounds like shimmering melodic details far in the distance that suck you right into the centre of the sound, which lasts for about half the side before slowly subsiding to reveal little field recording details which may or may not have been there all along.The next drone is more fluttery and high-pitched and less industrial and oppressive, with recognisable chiming notes over the top, then there’s a hissy celestial section which is most relaxing and drifty...excellent, lovingly crafted and therapeutic offerings from both artists here.
