McHugh, Jonathan & Mark Wastell: Hydriotaphia (Confront)
Label: Confront    
Released in: Great Britain    

The first meeting of Mark Wastell and Jonathan McHugh, recording at the Electronic Music Studios at Goldsmiths College, London. Wastell builds large environmental sounds with a single tam tam, a slow moving powerful base over which Jonathan McHugh creates sound texture using audio feedback, sound synthesis, & live signal processing.

"45 minutes and 4 seconds of thumping, shifting, drone-tastic ear fodder. Not to be confused with the limited edition of 25 numbered CDR copies only that came out in January 2010."-Confront
