Artist statement by Clinton Green:

'In April 2017, Barnaby Oliver and I started recording with the aim of improvising long-form pieces made up of a restricted palette of gestures and sound sources. Throughout the next two years we came together sporadically as we continued this quest, working through various ideas and changing instrumentation. Our work was gradually refined done to what you hear on this album: a combination of harmonics arising from bowed metal bowls and violin (or piano), coalescing into other-worldly music that at first appears static, yet constantly shifts and re-grounds itself. "

 

Review by Review by Boring Like A Drill :

"At a time when just getting two people into a room to play together is a dimly-remembered luxury, it's nice to hear again the strange interactions that happened during an improvised duet. The three recordings here all took place before 2020's pandemic and the attendant lockdowns It's also nice to remember that austere doesn't have to be synonymous with meagre. The Interstices Of These Epidemics is the result of 18 months' preparation by Clinton Green and Barnaby Oliver, in which the two of them worked with “a restricted palette of gestures and sound sources” until they created this mesmerising pair of improvisations. Green plays bowed metal bowls, producing distinctively complex, friable drones that teem with ambiguous harmonics. It's a sound that can easily be overused but Green plays. In the first track, he's joined by Oliver on violin, the two of them merging. with steadfast restraint, letting inadvertent variations come of their own accord. into what sounds like a prepared string quartet playing a blurred, nebulous chorale. For the second, Oliver switches to piano and Green's drones become a substrates for a plaintive series of ostinatos. The wistful sentimentality of the chords and halting rhythm is tempered by Oliver's refusal to be led into anything beyond the most minute expressive gestures. "
