Linear Obsessional is delighted to present this spare and engrossing album by two experimental musicians from St Petersberg, Russia - Denis Sorokin and Sergey Vandyshev. Sorokin plays the electric guitar whilst Vandyshev works with Pure Data. The scintillating music on this album works with the contrast between Sorokin's essentially melodic and understated guitar work and the mutating noise and sound masses created by Vandyshev. The electronics mould themselves around the plangent plucks of guitar, creating an enveloping wash of sound. The results resemble a 21st century take on the duo experiments of Fripp and Eno in the 1970s - too restless and discomforting to be "ambient" and too communicative and ear-friendly to be dismissed as "noise"- and exactly that between- the-cracks quality that Linear Obsessional seeks to encourage.
