This is a vinyl re-issue of Dunn’s debut which originally drifted into consiousness back in 2008 and as you might expect, if you’ve heard his other work, it comprises of a series of beautiful violin drones. I assume its a violin, he is certainly using or some sort of stringed instrument and its highly processed so that you can’t tell exactly what the original sound source was.
It is, as you may be able to gather, stunningly beautiful. There is a sun dappled beauty to these pieces, like sunlight glinting off a building. They have just the right amounts of movement to keep things interesting and keep your ear focussed on the music whilst you drift off into your own world. There is a slight harshness to some of the tones on opener ‘Miranda Rights’ (though never ear piercingly) which is offset by some grainy lower end haunting sounds on ‘Sedentary Part 1’. On ‘An Extension’ colour is provided by some warm piano notes whilst the strings disappear off into orbit. The piano makes a full appearance for closer 'Sedentary Part 2', the piece much more recalling the intimate soundtracky piano compositions of Dustin O'Halloran.
Lovely warm ambient stuff, if you like textural drifting tone pieces you are going to want to get a copy of this sharp-ish. If you are unaware of Dunn’s work (and there is lots of it) then this is a as good as any place to start.
