Description by Crow Versus Crow:

"Crow Versus Crow is delighted to present, Accelerate, a new body of work from Cahn Ingold Prelog, alias of North Wales-based interdisciplinary artist Simon Proffitt (The Master Musicians of Dyffryn Moor, Carnedd Aur, The Incidental Crack).

Adjusting to the restrictions a national lockdown imposed upon the means and opportunity for creative practice, Proffitt consciously embraced the potentially destructive limitations and harnessed them as a positive framework for sonic exploration. Using only a piezoelectric accelerometer, a highly sensitive vibration measurement tool used extensively through various industries to measure small vibrations with frequencies as low as 0.1Hz up to almost 4kHz, and custom amplifier to extract sounds from within the domestic confines.

The act of rummaging around in a drawer for a council tax bill, or searching for a clean fork, once recorded through the piezoelectric accelerometer, are given an almost ceremonial air. Excavated and abstracted, familiar sounds of domestic life are transformed, transmuted, and filled with a deeper, almost spiritual, significance – zen-like, monkish rituals in banality give sonic flickers of gong ritual.

Across ten tracks, Accelerate, presents a combination of unprocessed field recordings and multitracked compositions that harness the objects of domesticity, of the household, revealing the house itself as raw materials from which intricate, complex, delicate compositions emerge, transcending the limitations of their seeming confines. Ice Tray) poetically skirt the absurd with a dry humor that offsets the serious intent of such methods of exploration

...'Transcend','… Seeking…','… Search…','Satellite' ...

The duality of Meaning and Meaninglessness is a constant through Accelerate and seems to be at the core of the essential questioning that frames its production.
