"There's tension in the air and the birds are quiet. The day is dull, life is still. Haunting cassette hiss fills the room. Outside, the children are screaming in agony but muffled whispers are all that comes out. Was that your first lover's voice? Another flashback from unremembered youth?

Preslav Literary School is dedicated to tape collage and endless rearrangements of outsider noise and found sound." Full of Nothing.

"'Francis Servain Mirkovic' starts very quietly and builds into a sixteen minute celestial, harmonious drone.

It plays like an old wax cylinder of pumped organ music. Deep and beautiful stuff." MuhMur.

"Essential." Lend Me Your Ears.
