Pleq, Hiroki Sasajima and Spheruleus manage to overcome the sheer geographic distance that lies between them to produce a really wonderful studio album.Pleq and Hiroki Sasajima are from bustling capital cities; Warsaw and Tokyo respectively, which has naturally had an impact on their sound. Whilst Spheruleus is from a quiet Lincolnshire town in the UK, surrounded by farmland. As a result of the inspiration drawn from their different environments, the solo output from these three artists is all quite different, with Pleq exploring glitch, drone and sometimes downtempo styles, Hiroki working mainly with field recordings and digital processes and Spheruleus focussing on acoustic instruments. Whilst it took several months for the three artists to craft the final outcome, the listener gets a sense of not a studio album but rather a live improvised session. The sound is compound as if they were all in the same room performing together and yet you can clearly distinguish the three different approaches of sound design, overlapping and yet never barricade each other. The tracks are inspired by the language barrier and obviously the physical distance between the artists, and are named after a certain time of day that everybody in the world experiences, irrespective of timezone or language differences. Almost as if they are trying to capture various everyday life emotions and transcode them to a non-language, universal and appealing form. The oneness and togetherness of music. Throughout this record, Hiroki Sasajima's field recordings and drones are carefully adapted by Pleq with the addition of gentle drones and glitching textures, with Spheruleus weaving in subtle acoustic sounds using his instrument collection. Together, three far-flung sound artists have created a short and beautifully cohesive selection of moods, designed for the turntable and beyond.
