For their second major recording project Host, Australian sound artists Anthea Caddy and Thembi Soddell rigorously shape aural representations of physical environments to express psychological experience. Recorded in scientifically controlled spaces and unpredictable natural and man-made environments, sampler and cello interact to generate acoustically opposing atmospheres. Interwoven with abstracted found sounds, instrument and environment merge to create a dynamic interplay between physical reality, sensory perception and psychological interpretation. Host presents an edition of tense electroacoustic compositions that define new, dense, and sonically detailed environments that highlight and shadow the interaction between human psyche and the physical world. "The fusion of these different kinds of electroacoustics cracks our fake tranquility, dragging us into an uncertain kind of awareness that doesn't admit the presence of danger but at the same time almost expects it with unpronounceable pleasure." --Touching Extremes
