    Incidental Incremental
    Marble Detach

    "Debut release on the newly formed Arell imprint, a collective experiment in some respects that intends to bypass the would be listeners want for skipping tracks by releasing both albums and EP’s as a single extended track that way giving the consumer the chance to hear and appreciate the release as the artist intended. Exploring sound collages ranging from drone, glitch, ambient and beyond, each invited artist will be given a black and white photograph which is meant to serve as a point of reference, over the course of time it is hoped that these photos and their accompanying music will form a larger interconnecting canvas / portrait. ‘Sulphide Fractures’ is intended to serve as a blueprint for future releases and pairs together both Laica and the Revenant Sea, who over the course of the last few months have been sending backwards and forwards across the information loaded ether clouds, found sounds that each has remodelled, remoulded and rephrased into a sonic skin that has eventually come to bear here. The 20 minute ‘Sulphide Fractures’ comes sub divided into four interlocking suites each offering a slow shape shift in sonic perspective, a full on head rush in immersive meditative ambience that takes its structural cue, or so it would seem, from Jean Michel Jarre’s ‘magnetic fields 1’ in so much as its bookended by vibrantly busy peaks and mellowed by intervening dream states accentuated by the adept of space, atmosphere and mood. Barely given time to adjust to your surroundings and focus ‘dislocation climb’ is about you in an instant swarming you in deep psychtronic trance tonalities that come soldered up on heavy bearing industrial structures that in many respects recall Pan Sonic in their more experimental Fat Cat years, a white hot intensifier steadily assuming critical mass so that by its fall its hypno grooved pulsar rays are off the scale and into head bleaching territories. ’03.11.14.V2’ is by comparison a more serene serving, the drone tides traced to a vapour trailing bliss like calm before seamlessly crystallising into ‘incidental incremental’ – here the atmospherics assume a more chill tipped readily passive and ethereal dream like subterranean persona that’s tethered and teased upon disorientating mosaics where chattering ghost lights, murmuring electrode frequencies and insectoid clicks flicker, flutter and dissipate into the gaseous void, very Aphex-ian it ought to said which leaves the softly purred dubtronic daubs of ‘marble detach’ to slowly take you by hand on the return journey back conscious states, essential headphonic groove all said."
