Sam Kidel a.k.a. El Kid presents an extended drone work for the excellent Entr’acte label inspired by Henri Michaux's 'Untitled (Movements)' drawing. Located much farther out than his work with Killing Sound or the Young Echo collective, or even his numerous soundtracks for film, TV and theatre, the piece is based on two layers of synthesiser - one outputting the wavering, natural heat fluctuations of analogue circuitry, and another undergoing a slow and subtle metamorphosis. Pocked with collaged clippings of a modified guitar, the results recall Bellows’ incredible crack'd tape loops as much as Eliane Radigue's microtonal works and Jim O'Rourke's prepared guitar pieces, fracking salty synth tones and quivering partials with jagged scree to patient, stealthily hypnotic effect. In other words - it’s really pretty great and definitely one of the most interesting transmissions yet from any of the members of this already prolific collective.
