about

Upon returning to the original, raw cassette recordings for A Blanket Of Infinite Repetitions, laid to sun-baked tape in 2010 in South Carolina, the temptation to play with the material became too great to bear, and subsequently these extended ambient pieces were generated. Built using a convoluted process of both wearing down the original cassette sound until it is nearly unlistenably textured, then elongating it digitally to allow for these textural events to pull themselves apart in unique ways, the resultant recordings were further processed live via an FX chain of exponential reverb saturations and pitch shifts up/down two octaves. This process allowed for moments that may have otherwise been very small melodic transitions in the original pieces to become far more pronounced and overt, effectively building huge atmospheres from a very singular provenance. These pieces have been especially mastered at a lower volume level to allow for the listener's momentary environment to color the playback, although they will also work sufficiently with a nicer set of headphones.

The original recordings have been remastered (albeit more traditionally) and augmented with a 40-minute Coppice Halifax remix here: milieumusic.bandcamp.com/album/a-blanket-of-infinite-repetitions-expanded-remastered
