Recorded at Stockholm's EMS Elektronmusikstudion during a Guest Composer residency in 2013.
Using a combination of the vintage analogue equipment at EMS and various computer processes, the material on “TRACE” was recorded and mixed specifically for diffusion over the Audiorama 17.4 surround sound system, custom built and installed inside the decommissioned torpedo workshop on Skeppsholmen island in Stockholm.
Mastered by Joe Panzner, sleeve photography by Eddie Nuttall, thanks to Ian M Fraser.
a true record with movement through the five tracks, each one unique in its' scope and role. Certain tracks lean to the pitched tonal world, others to the constant churn of the drone, while others use negative sonic space a bit more freely. The binding concept of each track is a commitment to immaculate sounds. Clearly presented, sometimes dirty, sometimes ethereal, sometimes spacious, and sometimes waterfall-like and open, but always perfectly articulated. bkudler
