"The first duo release by Australian composers Oren Ambarchi and Martin Ng from Sydney -- a trilogy of pieces based upon the fluid architectural modulation of harmonics and resonances. Recalling the landmark experiments of the Sonic Arts Union (Robert Ashley, David Behrman, Alvin Lucier and Gordon Mumma), Ambarchi and Ng create an enigmatic tapestry of pulsing, shimmering and shifting sound which represents a subtle and compelling realignment of Eastern and Western minimalist traditions. Oren Ambarchi's work to date has been rooted in the exploration and extension of the guitar's outer limits with solo releases Insulation on Touch and Stacte 3 on Plate Lunch as well as collaborations with Robbie Avenaim on Tzadik and AMM's Keith Rowe, Fennesz, Peter Rehberg and Pimmon on Ritornell. Electronic musician Martin Ng currently works with such diverse artists as Farmers Manual's Hiaz Gmachl and woodwinds player Jim Denley. The unique full-color art work accompanying this release was created by Viennese graphic designer Tina Frank (Mego)."
