Cheapmachines “Cast” ~ A new cassette release, now available form Beartown Records.
“The audio experiments conducted by London resident and improvised drone specialist Philip Julian have bewildered and intrigued us for a hell of a long time now. Ever since we witnessed an intensive and utterly relentless computer-based performance at Area 10 in Peckham, London, we were absolutely hooked.
Whilst being a regular on the live circuit, Philip also specialises in sonic installations and here, under his rather fantastic CHEAPMACHINES alias, continues his exploration and scrutiny of the organ continues with two decadent, alluring and warm compositions.”
Edition of 30 complete with slightly optimistic, fold-out watercolour artwork.”
Available digitally via Bandcamp

Review by Chris Sharp (The Wire, August 2009):
“…what we have are 8 beautifully constructed tracks of abstract sound. They have poise poetry and deliberation – others take note. I need not say much more – than they utilize with what I think is both wit and skill the audio media of the sound artist. Not noise then as much as abstract musical compositions.”
