about

From the press release:
Bounds is a new, more synthetic direction for Seth Nehil. Originally composed for a festival of music in complete darkness, these pieces treat recorded sound as infinitely malleable and transformable. Starting with acoustic percussive sources (drums, gongs, cymbals, vibraphones, etc.), recordings were warped beyond recognition, exploring the juncture between rhythm and pitch. Sonic impulses were subjected to micro-editing techniques to produce new, alien forms which were then fragmented into grains, pulses and tones or built up into rhythms, loops and cycles. Convolution reverb was used extensively to color timbres and place sounds into unusual spaces. These eleven short tracks are full of expanses, interruptions and repetitions. These are dynamic compositions that sound like nothing else.
