Conversations About The Light – This Is Not My Home

This release consists of two “business card” CDR’s, packaged in a little plastic box with an insert. Disc One, features two tracks “Beginning” which is a 16 second burst of snarled electronics, and “This Is Not My Home I.” This piece begins quietly, with staticy tones and deep ambient textures gradually swelling. It’s a rather quiet piece, built around the slow shifts of those textures and tones, but has a well developed feel. Disc Two begins with “This Is Not My Home II,” a piece more dense that the previous one. Heavy low end and snaking higher frequencies introduce the track, it drops to near silence and then erupts dramatically with a throbbing almost orchestral rhythmic crush, and fluid grinding textures and haunted tones, and even some violin it seems. There are a lot of layers and details in this piece and the atmospheres create with the density of the construction give it a huge presence. “End” rounds it out and is again a very brief piece, this time of distant ambient. I really enjoyed this, and look forward to seeing something lengthier in the future. – Scott
