"The Slow Creep Of Convenience is a single extended work presenting the pipe organ and electric violin as a unified timbral force, producing exquisite and hypnotic sensorial phenomena over 50 minutes. The follow up to their critically acclaimed "Entertainment=Control", Slow Creep furthers the duo's spectral investigations in a different instrumental context. Glacially moving through diverse harmonic fields, the organ and violin perceptually fall away to create a unique psychoacoustic sound-world, attaining a meditative ecstasy beyond musical classification. As with all Immediata releases, Anthony Pateras interviews his collaborators on the current state of creative music in the early 21st century. He poses 13 questions to Erkki Veltheim covering economics, technology, self-perception and creative longevity, dissecting the dichotomy of sound phenomena vs. musical representation. This is the 10th release in the Immediata series, beautifully presented in coffee-tone recycledcardboard, silver hot stamped text on front, 24 page booklet and mastered by Lachlan Carrick at Moose Mastering."-Immediata
