This is a reissue of the highly acclaimed 2001 album, Suspension by Australian musician Oren Ambarchi. He has released three albums for Touch: Insulation, Suspension and Grapes from the Estate. Oren Ambarchi is an electronic guitarist and percussionist with longstanding interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches. Born in Sydney in 1969, he has been performing live since 1986. His work focuses mainly on the exploration of the guitar, re-routing the instrument into a zone of alien abstraction where it's no longer easily identifiable as itself. Instead, it's a laboratory for extended sonic investigation. As the title of this release suggests, the listener is suspended in dense tonal fields or complete silence; adrift, never touching the bottom, never reaching the surface but continually held in the realm of the instant. Movement and flux contend with stasis and rigidity. Sounds continually unravel and solidify. These works are endless, eternal, never opting for obvious resolutions or easy destinations. Often beginning in abstraction, seemingly random and irregular pulses and tones coalesce and converge. All elements are part of a greater logic, which reveals itself through intense, immersive and repeated listenings. Ambarchi has performed and recorded with Martin Ng, Christian Fennesz, Otomo Yoshihide, Pimmon, John Zorn, Voice Crack, Sachiko M, Keith Rowe, Phill Niblock, Günter Müller, Evan Parker, Toshimaru Nakamura and many more. He recently toured with Sunn0))), also contributing to their Black One album.
