The 3rd installment of the FLEX 13 story finds Hope & Collins refining their technique yet further. As always determining exactly what is sampled & what is played is a virtually impossible task. Sound of Darkness is their most open & melodic work to date as sonic layers give way to sparse rhythmic passages and freeform keyboard highlights. There's a cinematic undercurrent referenced in found dialogue as the audio equivalent of tectonic plates slide across each other to reveal new plots and narratives.
Recorded by Charlie Collins at The Sound Kitchen, Sheffield in 2000 (except the final track which was recorded & written by John Wills at the Pumajaw studio, Perthshire) Sound of Darkness is a moment of comparative calm before the oncoming storm!
released February 5, 2013
All tracks written & produced by Pete Hope & Charlie Collins except 'Pimp St. Johns' by John Wills.
