Two artists/four guises resulting in 13 tracks of echo-soaked warmth peppered with the pin-prick static of old vinyl.
si-cut.db [Douglas Benford] has released works on BiP-HOp and the Sprawl Imprint. His past collaborators have included Scanner, and Ben Edwards (under the guise Tennis), and his many curated projects include 'Chinese Whispers' and 'Hmm'. His release 'Offices at Night' was released on Fällt in 2004 - the first in a three volume set - and he was recently featured on the latest WarpMart sampler.
Full Swing [Stephan Mathieu] has released works on Ritornell, Orthlorng Musork and Fällt. For some time he "has been trying to reduce his compositional approach to a minimum by accepting sounds the way they are." His work - often associated with the memories of melody and distant traces of sound - has received widespread critical acclaim.
Volume 2 features essays by Gordon McEwen [%Array] and Christopher Murphy [%Array, e | i].
