Entropy Is What The State Makes Of It

Steerage: Entropy Is What The State Makes Of It (Caduc)

An album of tones and tonal environments from Barry Chabala and A.F. Jones, using guitars and effects to create slowly moving tones punctuated with unusual utterances of unknown origin; rich and curiously non-specific sound that lives in the back- and foreground.

"More guitars at work, as I believe so to be, is the release by Steerage, a duo of A.F. Jones and Barry Chabala. I must admit I am not blown away by the title they choose for this, but so be it. Their music is quiet too [...] Also their work seems to be more about the singing of overtones and feedback like sounds, of two guitars in close proximity, feed backing against each other, and every now and then they bump against each other (not literally) and it spawns off a new domain in the world of overtones. In the third piece (all seem untitled) there is a more static point reached, in which both players control the situation pretty well. Maybe it's perhaps too controlled. The fourth and final piece is a bit different in the way that it starts out with some more acoustic like sounds (field recordings? objects rubbed?) and after a while some sustaining, high/low pitched sounds come to the foreground, all it seems rather sampled. In a way it reminded me of zoviet*france. It seemed a break from the previous three pieces, but it made perfect sense to have this one on here as well. It makes all of this quite a varied release of improvised feedback/sine wave/electronic music. Quite a good release. (FdW)
