"My work over the last several years has focused on the investigation of aural phenomena, environment, spatial listening, structure, natural and evolving processes, function, possibilities, and materiality. My interests have led me to explore acoustics, psychoacoustics, binaural beats (brainwaves), and diverse methods of recording sound, and the application of systems and strategies, which have served as the fundamental departure towards achieving my work." -- Richard Garet "Four Malleable is comprised of what are among Richard's best compositions from four different years: 'Imaginative Elements' (2004), 'From Modified Tapes' (2005), 'Sceneries' (2006), and 'Nocturne' (2009). Four previously unreleased works that place the mind's eye inside malleable forms and blurred locations. As is the tendency of a/O to often draw comparisons to the world of cinema, this release at times recalls the well known scene in Michelangelo Antonioni's Deserto Rosso where actress Monica Vitti watches as her friends slowly fade into the hazy distance without anyone actually moving. While this connection was not intentional on the part of Richard, it is quite pertinent to a/O since he is to have a track featured as part of the CD project entitled, Michelangelo Antonioni - Trilogy & Epilogue, which casts a conceptual lens on Antonioni's 'tetralogy' of films which includes Deserto Rosso. It was partially because of hearing the works later featured on Four Malleable (among other works) that Richard was invited to participate in the project."
