So farHas published works from Tone Log and Hot ReleasesA new work by Philadelphia-based sound artist Patrick Gallagher will be released on the co-label of enmossed and psychoic liberation in January 2020.

As the title suggests, this work contains uncertainty, andNo post-processing has been done to maintain the improvisational nature of the live performance, giving the album an organic feel that is often lost in academic composition.

Includes two 20-minute electroacoustic flights. DL code included.

Presented as a re-creation of two live sets performed in 2019, Patrick Gallagher deftly melds field recordings, a "fairly standard" synthesis toolkit, and prepared electric guitar into two peerless electro-acoustic compositions comprising his debut album for ENXPL (enmossed x psychic) liberation).


As the album's title implies, "Set In the Bardo" embraces indeterminacy in all respects. An extreme range of timbrel variety and complexity is employed, from pure sine waves to nearly-incomprehensible sonic blasts. With a formal education in mathematics, Gallagher's astute arrangements Modulate between smooth glissandos and abrupt interruptions, reflecting the compositional process used: salvaging hitherto-abandoned recordings and live snippets from the artist's archive. Post-processing was eschewed on the album in order to preserve the improvisatory nature of a live performance, giving an organic quality to the album which is often lost in academic compositions.

While "Set In the Bardo" was created in pre-pandemic times, it also functions well at this particular juncture of history. We have been'set in the bardo'ourselves, and Gallagher has made an engrossing set of pieces --encapsulating and unfolding sonic uncertainties as we venture through trying times. Well worth many listening sessions; high volume and high fidelity during playback are recommended.

Patrick Gallagher is a sound artist and composer currently residing in Philadelphia, PA.
