These pieces were composed without the use of a computer, only a turntable, old sampler and a portable 64-track digital workstation. Each track is a distillation of commercially available recordings with the essential qualities remaining, only very brief sections are selected and the raw components then contracted into gradually shifting and unfolding atmospheres, offering subtle nuances and quiet restraint. Fragments from these tracks include sounds from birds or water, some being partially obscured while others are veiled references to those elements. (in 'broken light', the low rumbling that appears at the beginning and for the first few minutes is the sound of birds' wings flapping upon takeoff). All compositions by Colin Andrew Sheffield.
