Pre-listening Track

A collection of distance collaborations. Recorded in Edinburgh, Manchester & Aups – 2013 to 2014. Henry and Free Variety Theatre have never met in “real life”, though we have performed together virtually. They record fluctuating acoustic (and electrical) energy patterns, transcode and manipulate them, trade the digital data, package it up with words and pictures in such a way that the new energy patterns can easily be converted back to sound. Along with time, actual locations become largely irrelevant. The final result is that these “tracks” never happened, they were never performed in the conventional sense, they are all an illusion. [Fabricated] Don't worry, so is much of the music out there. That convention, at least, remains unchanged. There is some real stuff in here, material that existed before. [H.H.] But most of it is pieced together from brief moments of activity. Fragments of time, consciousnesses aligning in space or around the pages (the words, even, are irrelevant). Music out there.
