Debut collaboration from two legends of the NZ (Peter Wright) & US (Howard Stelzer) underground experimental / electronic scene (s).

Artist statement by H. Stelzer:

"I've been a long-time fan of Peter's lush, pastoral drone music (think Vini Reilly meets Terry Riley, perhaps?) Since his early CDR releases on labels such as Celebrate Psi Phenomena, PseudoArcana & Last Visible Dog et al. in the early 2000's ... I even performed a few shows in the US with Peter and Antony Milton, when they came to New England for a short tour, over a decade ago now. Nice guys. The three of us recorded some jams in my living room back then, but nothing great ... I ended up chopping it up and using'em as source sounds, though I don't recall where it all ended up.
I remember one concert we did at the'Ecstatic Yod'store in Western Massachusetts, where Peter was excited to find & buy a copy of the classic Plagal Grind record (!!!*) --Kinda thought everyone in NZ owned that already .. S'pose not!
Peter and I had been in touch for awhile since then and had broached th'idea of ​​making a proper album together ... and finally, th'stars aligned and it happened. We began before Covid-19, but certainly being stuck inside has tened its completion. I'm sure lots of albums were made in March / April / May of this year, for th'same grim reason ...
'Utsuro-bune' is our first composition together, named after a place where extra-dimensional citizens have [supposedly] torn through the thin veil of space / time to visit us. This seems to've happened more than once, though mainly in airports, hotels & once on a beach.
Yeah .. It's "true"! --Peter and I crossed space and time to make this music, but only because we live in opposite hemispheres. Though perhaps we do live in different dimensions now ... sometimes it feels that way ... "
