Analepsis 12:13


"This is [one half] of a split release featuring the work of two young, Berlin based sound artists: Preslav Literary School (aka Adam Thomas) and Will Gresson. The former, originally from the UK, has toured his multi-layered tape collages throughout Europe, sharing stages with the likes of Aki Onda, Machinefabriek, Gudrun Gut & AGF, Anton Bruhin, Leif Elggren and Sudden Infant. The latter, a New Zealander, forms half of NZ/Italian drone duo Fausto Maijstral and works extensively on exploring the relationship between urban infrastructure systems and the residents affected by them.

Gresson's side captures the feel of a cold winter in a bustling city, recorded on a bedroom floor late one evening it ebbs and flows but never quite strays from the cover of night. If you listen close enough you can hear the sound of an ambulance rushing by, there for a moment and then forgotten to the city.

Thomas's side is no less evocative - a live collage of old tapes and spoken word recordings mixed in realtime alongside an unintrusive synth part." Bomb Shop
