These recordings originated as multichannel pieces presented at events organised around Goldsmiths University, London, by Sandra Kazlauskaite and Tom Mudd during 2015. These have been reworked and reconstructed here for stereo.
All the recordings have their origins in repeating patterns or sequences which then drift over time or start to collapse entirely, either by design or by accident — e.g. poor quality or non- existent synchronisation between different devices, fluctuating or random/unstable voltages, human interference etc.

Ed Pinsent at The Sound Projector reviews the “Bind” CD:
Joe Murray at Radio Free Midwich reviews the “Laughing Out” 7″ here.
“This book offers an up to date survey of this field for anyone with an interest, from seasoned practitioners to curious readers. This book takes the stance that experimental music is not a limited historical event, but is a proliferation of approaches to sound that reveals much about present-day experience. An experimental work is not identifiable by its sound alone, but by the nature of the questions it poses and its openness to the sounding event.”
