Interstices is Illuha's second album for 12k and is the product of refining live performance; exploring, deconstructing and reconstructing ideas and sounds. The results are three pieces from the duo of Tomoyoshi Date and Corey Fuller. Opener 'Interstices II' is a seemingly constantly evolving mix of rich ambient sounds, gentle acoustic instruments and analogue synthesisers. Over it's twenty four minute duration it unfolds with a wandering contemplative organic sound, despite the electronic tools involved. Midway things retreat to a quiet pause and rebuild with tender, dreamy guitar plucking.
'Interstices I' continues with crackle, treated piano, fragile electronics and flows effortlessly with lush floaty sounds but just before I'm lulled into sleepyville I'm awoken by a Japanese vocal narrative before some of the sounds seemingly appear to have switched to being played backwards.
'Interstices III' opens with field recordings and ghostly ambient synths and keeps growing as new sounds are introduced. There's really a lot to take in on this piece as the sounds keep moving forward, almost like their searching for something. There's a real sad melancholy to them as though what they're looking for can never be found. A very beautiful, super chilled out brain massager. A perfect soundtrack to those quiet moments of reflection.
