US dub techno writer Glyn Maier's first 12 "released by Enmossed, Maine in November 2020, based on sound material collected at Ringing Rocks, Pennsylvania, and Kaena Point, the westernmost point of Oahu. Includes 11 dub techno songs. Limited to 4 copies. DL code included. Out of print.


Edition of 100. 

Indefinite Lattices, the new 12-inch record by Glyn Maier, is rock music of a very different order. During visits to two mineral-rich sites, Maier collected field recordings of these environments which were then re-synthesized into four extended compositions. At Ringing Rocks in Pennsylvania, a field of boulders make bell-like tones when struck, as well as low-frequency tones that are unhearable by humans. (Scientists have yet to discern why the rocks ring, but believe it may have to do with the freeze-thaw cycle that produced them.) The other site visited by Maier—the fairly remote Kaʻena Point on the coast of O'ahu, Hawaii—was believed to be the departure point for souls leaving this world.

The unstable rhythmic patterns from these spaces, as well as Maier's tappings, scrapes, and footsteps throughout the two sites, are paired with lullabilic progressions and ghostly effects. Instead of the artist's personal expressions, the tracks on Indefinite Lattices are envisioned as lithic formations in Their own right, as things grown rather than produced. They seem to have peaceful but complex lives of their own. Guided by notions of deep ecology—and an anti-colonialism that recognizes the bloody histories of these two sites—Maier refashions the instrumental utility. of electronic music so that the agency of environments is emphasized.
