Though not yet properly established as a solo artist, Jeremy Simmonds aka Voafose has remained a collaborator, background influence and spiritual advisor to artists such as Luke Vibert, AFX and Boymerang for years. This debut album release is an opportunity to properly represent his presence. Contained on the CD are a collection of ambient solutions and sonic curiosities, selected from a 20 year archive of material. Expect to hear explorations into the aural benefits of pitch instability, the textural artifacts of audio tape, audio strobing, vocal manipulations, as well as muzak-concrete and a few psychiatric realizations. The following instruments and ingredients are evident; Roland SH-101 and JX8P synthesizers, Fender Rhodes Mk 1 Stage Piano, various delay/reverberator/modulator units, modified tape recorder devices, feedback, music and voice captures from radio and television, famous clock bells, a World War I bomb casing and faulty plumbing. Voafose recording experiments started years before collaborative music -- from childhood experiments/playtime with discarded, hand-me-down tape recorders... capturing sounds from radio, TV, and the outside world through childhood ear-filtering. Many of these sounds appear in previous collaborative work and feature on the CD also -- either within part of the sound collage or individually as intervals between pieces (e.g. "Big Ben," composed from source material generated as far back as 1985). The aim of this album is to provide a mixture of atmosphericals, reflections, aural psychosis and comedy. It's also a chance for Rephlex to showcase someone they consider to be a master of timbre and sonic wit.
