SFA020 - Stratocluster: Tamanrasset

Writing liner notes for a project as spontaneous as this one is somewhat self-defeating. The purpose of liner notes is generally to expound a concept, an innovation, a purpose: we have none of these things.
We met to have a few drinks, breathe the proverbial fresh air and play music, not to record an album. We recorded in a living room, not in a studio, and on one handheld recorder, not an expænsive setup.
There was no playlist, program or concept, but only the projected coherence of our individual musical personalities. We played instruments we didn’t know we could play, and played things we didn’t know could be instruments. We played music we knew and music we didn’t, and hopefully some music that’s new.

SFA019 - Skan-zen: Pure Distortion

Project Pure Distortion (00-11) is a play with time and coincidence. Quest of sound. Corrosion and origination. Repeatedly effected record uncover the initial frequency of the material itself.
Thickening and transfering information, yearning... setting...
What is music?
Dream is more than life.
