'Soundlines' Comes in three parts.The first track 'Soundlines I' is the score to 'The Sounding Lines Are Obsolete' a film by John Price. It begins with washes of radio static sounds that come across sounding like digital ocean waves crashing against the rocks. Gareth Davis provides deep bass tones with Bass Clarinet and Contabass Clarinet. His sounds create a very mysterious feel and as the track progresses the vibe becomes more sinister with abstract frequencies and drones that together build a piece that is very cinematic. Simon Scott (Televise) provides additional sounds. 'Soundlines II' is the shortest track and is essentially a moody ambient piece and although this was not used as a soundtrack it follows on nicely from the first part, giving a cohesive flow and setting the scene for part III. Which begins by sounding like my decks when the earth cable comes out of the mixer. Davis' bass frequencies resonate under lovely machine sounds and creepy electronics. If you're a fan of either artist then I'd say this was pretty essential.
