"Sholto Dobie releases his solo debut LP '23'. It is a record of a rough and perfected practice. Sholto Dobie, who has been working with pipes and air for many years, shows his current development with ``23''. Recorded during a year spent working in Lithuania, Vietnam and Sweden, the record distills a wide range of approaches to sound, casting a wide net to gather recordings from performances, gatherings, walks and personal life. Sholto carefully guides the listener between different environments and his closely recorded network of compressed air, tubes, reeds, flutes, and timers. In these recordings, life is welcomed, interiors can be heard and felt, indistinct voices, insects, and woods float by as we move through unfamiliar landscapes.

Sholto Dobie was born in Edinburgh and lives in Vilnius. He plays with his own wind instruments, using a Frankenstein-like setup that he has evolved over the years. The air pumps are attached to reed and metal pipes sourced from a variety of sources, including organs, bagpipes, and köhne, and are brought to life by an interrelated system of timer modules, valves, and swing microphones. 23 captures the rich world of pulses, beats, and breaths that emerge from Sholto's performance environment and weaves them into unique, unique audio compositions.

Infant Tree:

"Sholto Dobie puts forth '23' on Infant Tree, his debut solo LP. A wildly accomplished document of practice. After many years spent working with pipes and air, '23' offers us his current developments. Recorded in a year in which the artist worked in Lithuania, Vietnam and Sweden, the record distills a broad approach to sound, using a wide net to gather recordings from performances, gatherings, walks and personal life. Sholto carefully leads the listener between distinct environments and the intimately documented network of compressed air, tubes, reeds, flutes and timers which he works with. In these recordings, life is welcomed in, interiors are heard and felt, obscured voices, insects, forests drift in and out of focus, as we are transporting through an unfamiliar landscape .

Sholto Dobie was born in Edinburgh and lives in Vilnius, he performs with self-constructed wind instruments, using a frankenstein-like set up which has evolved over many years. An air pump is attached to a series of reeded and metal pipes from various sources - organs, bagpipes and khene - which are brought to life by an interrelated system of timer modules, valves and swinging microphones. '23' captures the rich world of pulses, beatings and breaths that have emerged from Sholto's performance settings, whilst weaving them into a distinct and unique audio work.

For anyone more familiar with Sholto's work you will no doubt be warmed by recognis delicately and evocative styles reminiscent of previous solo recordings such as 'Nevery' and 'The Ringer' as well as influences from friends and collaborators such as Judith Hamann, Malvern Brume, Ahti & Ahti, Rie Nakajima and Shakeeb Abu Hamdan.”
