Lituus is from Chicago, IL; less is known of Black William. Somehow, on this split of hypnotically minimal synth pieces, that seems appropriate. Black William’s side takes a simple repeated figure and expands it (by hand) into an expansive buzzing drone. Lituus likewise programs a sequence that remains in constant change throughout the piece’s duration. Both sides combine programmed sequences with planned change, but also include a certain level of machine/human interaction. Certain parameters are predetermined; others altered by a human being. Both draw attention to structure, change and duration, resulting in a unique harmony between the organic and the industrial.
