    With a strict 'no samples allowed' rule, Hansen has succeeded in disciplining himself to create something completely other. In his own words, “this record is meant as a collection of physical spaces, rather than of textures, which was more or less the focus of ‘Speak In a Low Voice’. Bits and pieces of junk were collected and recorded in a variety of rooms, at two or three distances simultaneously, natural reverbs mixed and melted with artificial ones, etc. The idea was to build fictional rooms and fill them with fictional objects.”

    There is a comfort within silence on these recordings, allowing sounds and motifs to bounce here and there between spells of tension and cold quietude. Erratic playfulness one moment, murky calm the next. Loosely cyclical treatments clatter and scatter in a strange and escalating parlay, intent on eluding us as we eavesdrop. These distant objects, shaky drones, and the soft trills of a clarinet comprise the characters of a journey through the odd and unclear.

    Mastered by Jack Eveleigh at TRC.

    Sleeve design and art direction was handled by The Immaculate Heart Studio / James Hines, in coordination with D.Hansen.

    Sleeves were produced by The Positive Press, London. info@thepositivepress.co.uk / www.thepositivepress.co.uk
