Debut collaboration of Richard Garet (who has recent releases on winds measure recordings, Non-visual Objects, and/OAR), and Brendan Murray (23five, Intransitive, Sedimental among others). Garet and Murray are both known for their carefully measured compositions, in which wide droning expanses are organized into articulated, endlessly engaging structures. Next to the timbral complexity and fine detail that comes through their layering of textures, Of Distance also shows well the painstaking attention devoted to the unfolding of temporal dynamics. Presented here is the result of three years of exchange between the artists, who initially got together for a series of improvised sessions and later used the resulting recorded material to compose the two long pieces on this CD. Their generative process encompasses analog synthesis and digital manipulation, as well as the use of field recordings as malleable sonic matter. The CD is packaged in a letterpress die-cut sleeve containing also an extra-long letterpress fold-out insert. Composed and produced by Richard Garet and Brendan Murray in Astoria, NY and Medford, MA, between Summer 2004 and Summer 2007. Designed by Gill Arnò and printed at Middle Press. Hand-made edition of 400 numbered copies.
