"In Between Words is a collection of works that continue Christopher Bissonnette's explorations into orchestral and spatial acoustics. Cultivating an increasing interest in field recording and found sounds, Bissonnette has woven spatial ambience into these new compositions, while still concentrating on moments of near empty space between 'instruments.' Inspired by the continuous din, the constant low-level hum of urban background noise, interspersed with all manner of mechanically-created sounds, Bissonnette finds in this a near-melodic soundtrack to his daily life. On the final track 'Jour Et Nuit,' this seems most apparent, as one can almost hear sparse traffic on a highway in the sweeping long tones. Using orchestral sound sources as well as recording his own sounds to manipulate and process, Bissonnette has crafted a symphony of six movements, with melodies as ghostly apparitions that fade in and out of view. Recorded as spontaneous mixes, these compositions maintain a sense of organic fluidity while creating passages of escalating tension."
