Mainly releasing electro-acoustic collaboration worksReleased by Anton Mobin from France and Andrew Sharpley from England from steep gloss in the UK. It is a work that has ASMR-like elements and is pleasant to the ear.It is about to be out of print.

For some years now, I wanted to make an album using the macro / HD sounds of ASMR videos, which seemed like an obvious source material for a kind of semi-improvised Musique Concrète or sound-collage, but after several false starts, I couldy never really find a way in until a chance meeting with Anton Mobin led to this collaboration.

The close-focus tactile quality of his sounds, and the clarity of detail, gestural precision and openness of his playing seemed like a good retort to the somewhat hermetic audio-fetishism of the ASMR videos, and opened a door for me to an easy, natural way of working, like a kind of'audio-essay' or'drawing with sound', a half-way house between the musical and the visual. It seems like an interesting place to be.
