"Snawklor is a project that reorders the sonic environments of D. Krasevac and N. Gray. They create compositions exploring ideas of space and personal location by processing and re-ordering recordings of their sonic environments. Their compositions not only use the sounds around them but also mimic their perceived structures, layering them via a mixture of order and automated indeterminacy. It Would Have Lived Here is their second full length release. A rich display of acoustic ecology incorporating field recordings, miked up metallic percussion, tape debris and computer construction. Whilst remixing the world around them Snawklor have developed a unique aesthetic language which is far from Windham Hill utopia but neither is it the evil edge as encountered in some of the recordings of Francisco Lopez and the like." A unique working process is exemplified by the 1st track 'doublivores back' combines field recordings from inner city Merri Creek with R+B influenced rhythms and sharp shots of the prior occupant of cassette sneaking through. The appearance of the subliminal residue of Grandmaster Flash makes for a unique chance procedure and is typical of snawklor's inventive approach.
