Perhaps appropriately, as autumn rolls in, Crow Versus Crow proudly presents, Version and Delineation, the first collaborative work from Caught In The Wake Forever and glacis.
Having individually released highly acclaimed records on such esteemed labels as Hibernate, Fluid Audio, Soft Corridor and Dronarivm, Version and Delineation sees Caught In The Wake Forever and glacis, working aliases of Fraser McGowan and Euan Millar-McMeeken respectively, deconstructing and expanding upon Neo-Classical and Ambient templates to produce a body of work that revolves around improvisation (with a small ‘I’) and noise (with a small ‘N’).
These six short works hinge upon glacis’ raw piano improvisations, recorded, without prior planning or subsequent revision, straight to IPhone Voice Memo software. That is not to say there is a flippancy to these recordings. Rather, they are considered, concentrated distillations of reflected emotional experience. precise and lyrical.
In response, Caught In The Wake Forever produces beds of glitching, warbled, heavily textured sound that lay in dialogue with the piano works. Using the Make Noise System Cartesian & Akai S20 Sampler to incorporate culled and processed snapshots of domestic minutiae, Caught In The Wake Forever’s intricate abstract compositions mirror the fragility and transient ephemerality of glacis’ piano pieces.

I am completely spellbound by this album. It's like drifting in and out of sleep and subconsciously hearing snippets of the world as it carries on regardless around you. I'm looking forward to listening to my vinyl copy when it arrives and I will certainly be exploring previous recordings. simon ring
