  • Availability:

Irish musician Daniel Figgis' first new work in 25 years in the UKLimited to 50 releases from Linear Obsessional.Contains 5 songs from neoclassical to noise. DL code included.

Edition of 50.

"Figgis (a long time friend of this label) released the magical “Skipper” in 1995. Since then Daniel has primarily worked on large scale live happenings involving waterfall, abandoned buildings, forest, World Financial Center New York, Symphony Space Broadway, Wexford Opera House, National Concert Hall Ireland, City Hall Dublin, National Basketball Arena Ireland, underwater choreography conducted under hypnosis at the Olympic Swimming Pool Limerick, and site specific compositions for various ensembles.
2020/21 has seen a flurry of relatively under the radar releases, including work with his 9 year old son and a necessary trawl through the archives, including the music on these 2 EPs. THE TYPING POOL consists of five tracks of extraordinary music --the title track is a propulsive masterpiece shifting from a chattering hypnotic groove into a maelstrom of drumming (Figgis is a drummer as well as composer) before settling again into an uneasy calm. A gargantuan multi -faceted piece, turning on a pin from moment to moment.
AWOL is music composed for a hypnotised underwater dancer-and is optionally woozy, haunting and sub-marine. Following the disorientating field recordings and time cut-ups of AUDITORIUM is "hurty" --one of those exquisite miniatures that Figgis excels at. The EP concludes with "Glimmered" a radical re-working of a similarly titled track from his "Skipper" masterpiece --splintered into a glitchy cascade of sparkling sound."
