Bio/statement: “Although Roger and I have amassed a small body of collaborative works going back to 2004, the session that produced "Physical Release" was the first recorded in each others presence in real time. All the material was recorded with minimal equipment (laptop for me, no-input mixer for roger), situated on the floor in the corner of my small, low-lite living room. No one else was present. This spatial immediacy allowed the two of us to act not only as sound contributors, but first audience members. I find that the aural tension apparent through our "Physical Release" speaks to the concept of body-as-extended-ear. Roger and I touched upon in our 2006 ep "The Body Is A Material Thing" (http://www.archive.org/details/n0epcd0106).
The belief in abstract sound design freeing the listener to explore more personal means of experiencing non-standard, non-musical sound was central to that release, and could be argued as the notion marrying the execution of the sound on “Physical Release" and its results. That said, the dynamic tension found on "Physical Release" is a palpable one, and is what makes this release such a worthwhile listen for me, personally. It represents a huge step forward in my own work, and in my on going shared love of noise music/abstract sound with Roger.”
