Non-Collaboration began as a collaboration between Heribert Friedl and Will Montgomery in spring 2006. Will began by processing some of Heribert's Hackbrett improvisations and adding his own sounds. Over time, it became clear that the two strands of sound Ð Heribert's acoustic and Will's electronic - weren't working well together. So Will absorbed Heribert's material into his own. The Hackbrett and the pace and shape of Heribert's improvisations have left their mark on these pieces. However, this seed material has become something entirely different. Will Montgomery's electronic compositions explore ideas of musical sequence and texture. He often builds his pieces from quite small musical elements, placing these in unusual and surprising ways. He is interested in combining different kinds of implied musical narrative in relatively short pieces. His album Water Blinks was well received on its release in winter 2005. He contributed to the nvo book Extract in 2007. The first part of a project on the audio environments in and around 1960s and 1970s social housing developments can be found on his website, www.selvageflame.com. He is currently working on a project involving processed field recordings for the SNO gallery in Sydney, Australia. A recently completed collaboration with the writer Brian Marley is forthcoming. As a journalist he has written extensively on contemporary music since the early 1990s, mainly for The Wire.
